$F's=1,O's=2,U's=1, N's=2, D's=1, A's=1, T's=1, I's=1 $ There are are 10 letters in all. Number of repeating letters are $4$. So the probability is what?

  • $\begingroup$ The answer is 1/5 , But I don't think it is correct. Moreover why is it 0.2? Check this link Question 30: books.google.co.in/… $\endgroup$ – Shubh Khandelwal Feb 28 '18 at 5:32
  • $\begingroup$ @Shubh The only possible explaination is that the answer is a misprint $\endgroup$ – Fitz Watson Feb 28 '18 at 6:25
