a. All of the engines are defective.
b. At least one of the engines is defective.
c. None of the engines are defective.

2. Express the degree of likelihood as a probability value. "You have a 50-50 chance of choosing the correct answer." Whew-easy point! You are NOT allowed to get this one wrong! :-).

b. 0.50
c. 0.90
