1.English and American spellings are colour and color, respectively. A man staying at a
Parisian hotel writes this word, and a letter taken at random from his spelling is found to be a vowel. If
40 percent of the English-speaking men at the hotel are English and 60 percent are Americans, what is the
probability that the writer is an Englishman?
4. Three missiles are fired at a target and hit it independently with probabilities 0.6, 0.7, and
