You select a card at random from the cards that make up the word “replacement”. Without replacing the card, you choose a second card. Find the probability of choosing a consonant and then an “e”. There is 1 letter for each card.
a.2/55
b.21/110
c.1/121
d.1/11
The probabiltiy of selecting a consonant is 7/11.
The probability of then selecting an "e" is 3/10.
We multiply these two: 7/11 x 3/10 = 21/110 (choice b)
