A teacher randomly divides these 9 students into two groups: Group I with 4 students, Group II with 5 students (a) What is the probability that John is in Group 1? (b) If John is in Group I, what is the probability that Tom is also in Group 1? (c) What is the probability that John and Tom are in the same group? 2. In a certain group of people, it was found that 42% of them have alcoholic fathers, 8% of them have alcoholic mothers, and 48% of them have at least one alcoholic parent.
