16% chance

If you pick enough cards, the probability is 1. For a single card, picked at random, the probability is 1/13.

4/52 or 1/13. same as any number

The probability is 0 if you pick the the card from one end of a mint pack (2 of clubs) and 1 if you pick it from the other end (A spades). Also, if you pick 49 cards without replacement, the probability is 1. So, the answer depends on how many cards are drawn, and whether or not they are drawn from a well shuffled pack. The probability of getting an ace when one card is randomly picked from a pack is 4/52 = 1/13.

There are four Aces in a standard deck of 52 cards. The probability, then, of not drawing an Ace is (52 - 4) in 52, or 48 in 52, or 12 in 13, or about 0.9231.
