7 women in a group of 11 people 7/11

Not sure what a mulitple choice qustion is but if it is anything like a multiple choice question, it is 1/5 or 20%. I strongly advise you to get a dictionary, learn to spell or use a spell checker.

If the choice is unbiased, the change is 14/(10+14). If the chooser prefers choosing boys, the probability is 0.

The probability of correct true & false question is 1/2 and the probability correct multiple choice (four answer) question is 1/4. We want the probability of correct, correct, and correct. Therefore the probability all 3 questions correct is 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/4 = 1/16.

1/5 or 0.2

7/11Note:Choosing people in a committee is not a matter of chance or probability. Personality, skill, seniority etc. enter into the decision.

There are 11 people total and 7 women. The probability the chairman is a woman is 7/11.

Unless the chairperson has already been appointed/assigned by someone of higher authority, they are selected from among the members of the committee by majority vote of the members.

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

That depends a lot on the specific circumstances, of how you guess. For instance, if a test has true/false questions, the probability is 1/2; if it is a multiple-choice question with 4 options, the probability is 1/4; if there are 6 options, the probability is 1/6, etc.; if you have to calculate a number (and it is NOT a multiple choice question), the probability is rather low, indeed.
