    the question is not very clear

    you say one card is drawn and then ask for the prob of a spade AND a 5. That suggests two cards are drawn.
    Did you mean "the 5 of spades" ?, that is the answer that PsyDAG agreed with.

    If 2 cards are actually drawn then the prob would be
    C(13,1)xC(4,1)/C(52,2) = 52/1326
    = 2/51
