(a) Divisible by 2 & 3 both(i.e. 6,12,18,24,30,36,42,48) 

P =  8/50 =  0.16

(b) (c) (d) in similar way these can also be done

(e) Divisble by 2 or 3.(i.e. There will be two a.p. 2,4,6,8,10....50 and 3,6,9,12.........)

Find no. of terms in both.

Then add them and divide by 50. This will be the probability.

(f)(g)(h) can also be done similarly.
