```										Dear shefali
probability of same boy doesn't receive both pens = 1 - probabilty of any  boy  receive both pens
since all the student recieves same number of article.so each one get (10+2)/3 =4
number of ways in which 10 books and 2 pen is distributed to 3 student is =12C4 8C4 4C4
now find the number of ways such that any boy recieve the both pen...
select one boy from 3 and give both pen to him in = 3C1 * 1 ways
rest two article can be given to this boy in = 10C2 ways
other 2 boys will get article in 8C4 *4C4 ways
so number  of ways such that any boy recieve the both pen= 3C1 * 1*10C2 *8C4 *4C4
so required probability = 1- 3C1 * 1*10C2 *8C4 *4C4 / 12C4 8C4 4C4
=8/11
