Dear student,

since 20 study both,

no. of students study only history = 50-20 = 30

no. of students study only english = 30-20 = 10

=> number of students study atleast one subject = 30+10+20 = 60

probability that student studies atleast one subject = 60/100 = 0.6

probability that student studies history but not english = 10/100 = 0.1

probability that a student studies history given that he studies english = 20/30 = 0.66

 

i hope it explains
