## Skewed probability

If you have not studied just one out of the 13 possible experiments for a practical exam, what is the probability that you will be getting that ONE question?

**1/13**

Oh… I see.

Yup, the probability in your case seems pretty screwed up. But look at the bright side… now that it’s happened once… what’s the probability that it will happen again?

About 0.01?

We will have to wait and see till next Tuesday I guess! That was the model exam, so the real thing is on next Tuesday.

Well, what was ur prayer for phy and chem again? No spectrometer, no intrumentation? And what did i get stuck with!! And no blaming it on a lack of sleep this time.. you better know who this is.

Tough luck, yes. Well, there is still another round left. I am still embracing myself for the worst. Anything else that comes up is a bonus.
