The problem is not stated clearly,
. . so my interpretation may be wrong.
I assume the following:In a sports quiz, each participant is required to answer a question,
2 of which are on badminton and 3 on soccer.
The four participants are A, B, C and D.
They are required to pick their own questions randomly .
For each participant, what is the probability that he will be the first to pick a question on badminton?
. . The participants pick one question from the five.
. . The selected question is not replaced.
. . The participants do their picking in random order.
With all events being equally likely, each participant has an equal chance
. . of being the first to choose a badminton question.
Then why isn't this true?
