    It is ok.. I will ask others to teach me as communication problems.
    Yup.. My first language is not english. I'm a chinese. Ppl here communicate using mandarin only.
    I know my english is extremely bad. But at least i try . Sincerely, im sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for the comments. I will take it seriously.
    For those who made a mock of me, please be polite to others, as it might hurt ppl. Everyone's IQ is different. Maybe some day they become better than u.. Who know?
    (plz ignore my poor english) Thank you n hav a nice day ^^

    I Just tried solving this and got 25/99 which is well, near to 1/4 but not exact. This is what I did.

    First I made a tree diagram for each family. For question a) I just did 1/3 * number of girls in family/total number of people in family for each of the 3 families and then added the 3 results up to get: 5/9

    For question b) I just did 5/9 * 5/11 = 25/99

    Anyone can tell me where I went wrong? Thanks

    How did you get that

    The chance of a girl from family A is \frac{1}{3}\times\frac{3}{4} = \frac{1}{4} that is already greater than \frac{5}{22}
