Total strength = 30

No of English speakers = 16

No of French speakers = 5

a) Here as per the case we have to consider that all English speakers cant speak French and all French speaker cant speak English

Required probability

b) Here as per the case we have to consider that all all French speakers can speak English too

Therefore

No of non foreign language speakers = 30-16 = 14

Required probability

c) Since there are only 5 people who can speak French. So there can be at max 5 people who can speak both French and English

Required probability

d) In this case we consider that all French speakers cant speak English

Therefore

Required probability

e) In this case we will consider that all English speakers don't know to speak French
