Answer : 3 3/4 Explanation : Answer: C) 3/4 Explanation: Let A, B, C be the respective events of solving the problem and A , B, C be the respective events of not solving the problem. Then A, B, C are independent event∴A, B, C are independent eventsNow,  P(A) = 1/2 , P(B) = 1/3 and P(C)=1/4 PA=12, PB=23, PC= 34∴ P( none  solves the problem) = P(not A) and (not B) and (not C)                    = PA∩B∩C                   = PAPBPC         ∵ A, B, C are Independent                                         =  12×23×34                    = 14  Hence, P(the problem will be solved) = 1 - P(none solves the problem)                 = 1-14= 3/4
