It would help if you proofread your questions before you posted them. Don't know about a.
If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.
(b) 5/10 *(51)/(101) * 3/8 = ?
(c) 5/10 * 4/9 * 3/8 * 2/7 = ?
