13 In an international school in Hyderabad organised an Interschool Throwball Tournament for girls just after the pre-board exam. The throw ball team was very excited. The team captain Anjali directed the team to assemble in the ground for practices. Only three girls Priyanshi, Swetha and Aditi showed up. The rest did not come on the pretext of preparing for pre-board exam. Anjali drew a circle of radius 5m on the ground. The centre A was the position of Priyanshi. Anjali marked a point N, 13 m away from centre A as her own position. From the point N, she drew two tangential lines NS and NR and gave positions S and R to Swetha and Aditi. Anjali throws the ball to Priyanshi, Priyanshi throws it to Swetha, Swetha throws it to Anjali, Anjali throws it to Aditi, Aditi throws it to Priyanshi, Priyanshi throws it to Swetha and so on.

17 Piggy bank or Money box( a coin container) is normally used by children. Piggy bank serves as a pedagogical device to teach about saving money to children. Generally, piggy banks have openings besides the slot for inserting coins but some do not have openings. We have to smash the piggy bank with a hammer or by other means, to get the money inside it.
A child Shreya has a Piggybank. She saves her money in her Piggybank. One day she found that her Piggybank contains hundred 50 paisa coins, fifty 1 rupees coin, twenty 2 rupees coin, and ten 5 rupees coins. If it is equally likely that one of the coins will fall out when the bank is turned upside down.
Based on the above information, answer the following questions.
(a) The probability that the fallen coin will be 50 paisa coin, is ——-
(b) The probability that the fallen coin will be 5 rupees coin, is———
(c) The probability that the fallen coin will be 2 rupees coin, is———
(d) The probability that the fallen coin will be 2 rupees coin or 5 rupees coin, is——–
