Probability is the ratio of no. of possible outcomes to the maximum no. of outcomes .

If any event doesnt occurs ,then it is 0/N,where N=maximum no of outcomes .and that is 0 itself ,hence that is signified by zero ,or will at max, all the possible outcomes wil occur ,which means N/N that is denoted by 1.

Hence probabilty for the occurance for any event is between 0 and 1.
