# 10.The probability that a non-leap year selected at random will have 53 Sunday is,0 1/7 2/7 3/7

B.

1/7

In a non-leap year, total number of days is 365. Out of them, there are 52 weeks and 1 day extra.

Thus, a non-leap year always has 52 Sunday. The remaining 1 day can be Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Out of these 7 cases, we have Sunday in one case.

Thus, Total number of outcomes = 7

Number of favourable outcomes = 1

Hence, required probability = 1/7
