The probability that a letter picked at random is not a vowel depends on the set of letters you are choosing from. In the English alphabet, there are 21 consonants and 5 vowels, so the probability of picking a consonant is 21/26 or approximately 0.808.

The probability for a single random choice, is 6/13.

if you only consider the vowels to be aeiou, then the answer is that you have a 5 out of 26 (or .19%) chance.

Probability is given as Desired Outcomes divided by total number of outcomes. For the probability of picking a vowel, desired outcomes are : a,e,i,o,u (5) Total no. of outcomes is the entire alphabet set from a to z (26) Hence, the required probabilty is 5/26

The answer depends on what language you refer to. It also depends on which particular vowel is being referred to as "the vowel".Then you would need to know the number of words in that language that contained a j as well as those that contained a j after the vowel. The second number divided by the fist would give the required probability.
