22. number of red tens = 2

number of black 6's = 2

number of your event = 4

prob (red10 or black 6) = 4/52

prob (NOT(red10 or black6)) = 48/52

odds in favour of (red10 or black6) = (4/52) / (48/52)

= 4/48

= 1 : 12

which is D

24. odds in favour of storm = 4 : 1

so prob of storm is 4/5

25.

prob of QQ = (4/52)(3/51) = 1/221

prob not QQ = 220/221

odds in favour of QQ = (1/221) / (220/221)

= 1 : 220

which is A
