Answer = 1/8   or   12.5%

EXPLANATION:

probability of getting a tail = 1/2

probability of getting an even number = 3/6 = 1/2

probability of drawing a red card = 26/52 = 1/2

probability of doing three things one after other is obtained by multiplying individual probabilities

therefore

probability that you will get a tail and an even number and a red card from the deck = 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 = 1/8  or 12.5%

Good luck
