People confuse probability and odds

 

Probability   =   Favorable outcomes / Total Outcomes    =    2   /  7

 

Odds   =    Favorable outcomes / Unfavorable outcomes

 

Note, NSS....we have 2 favorable outcomes  to 7 total outcomes

So....we must have  7 - 2  =  5 unfavorable outcomes

 

So...the odds are

 

2 / 5   ⇒   D

 

Doet that make sense ???
