Puzzle Of The Day, Question of the day

**If a couple has 4 children then what are the chances that 2 of them are girls and 2 of them are boys. **

**1/2****3/8****1/16****none of these**

**Answer: (2) 3/8**

**Solution:**

**Total ways: 2*2*2*2 = 16 possibilities**

**Favorable ways: There are 4C2 = 6 ways to select the 2 places out of 4. Let’s call those 2 places boys so other 2 places will become girls.**

**hence probability = 6/16 = 3/8**
