  4. 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
