Question

# Among the following that cannot be a probability is

- 10%
- 10

Hint:

### The likelihood of an event happening or not in numeric terms is called probability. Probability is always denoted by a number between 0 and 1, 0 representing impossibility of the event happening and 1 representing certainty.

## The correct answer is: 10

### TO FIND-

Which of the given options can not be used to denote probability.

SOLUTION-

a. 10%

10% = 10/100 = 0.1

b. 10

c. 10 to the power of negative 10 end exponent

10^{-10} = 1/10^{10} = 0.0000000001

d. 1 over 10

1/10 = 0.1

Since we know that probability is always a number between 0 and 1, the only option that does not satisfy this condition is option b i.e. 10 because it is greater than 1.

FINAL ANSWER-

Option 'b' i.e. '10' is the correct answer to the given question.
