A sixth former us waiting for a bus to take him to town. He passes the time by counting the number of buses, up to and including the one that he wants, that come along his side of the road.
If 30% of the buses travelling on that side of the road go to town, what is
a. the most likely count he makes to the arrival of one that will take him into town.
I get that for geometric dist. the most likely outcome of p is 1, because highest probability is at x=1, but how do I show or express it in exam questions?

Mode is always 1 for geometric distribution since the probabilities are decreasing.
