Assuming that all the alternatives will kill you in question 1, I think that the answer is 'a'.
I think, with my admittedly dodgy knowledge of probability, that the probabilities are;
a) 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 x1/2 x 1/2 = 1/32
b) 1/6 x 1/6 = 1/36
c) 1/6 x 1/6 = 1/36 (I'm worried that this is the same as the previous one, but that's my reckoning)
d) 4/52 x 3/51 = 12/2652 = 221/1
I have no doubt this will prove to be wrong, but at least I tried.
And, Orlok, having worked this out, if this is a trick question and one of those alternatives won't kill you, then, Coventry's not that far away, that's all I'm saying.
