CFA Practice Question

Giorgio offers the person who purchases an 8 ounce bottle of Allure two free gifts, either an umbrella, a 1 ounce bottle of Midnight, a feminine shaving kit, a raincoat or a pair of rain boots. If you purchased Allure what is the probability you selected at random an umbrella and a shaving kit in that order?
A. 1.00
B. 0.05
C. 0.20
Explanation: There are 5 types of gifts. The probability of choosing an umbrella first is 1/5. Then the probability of choosing a shaving kit from the remaining four gifts is 1/4. So 1/5*1/4 = 1/20 = 0.05.
