Hello there! there are multiple sub parts in the question. According to our policis can answer only 3 subparts at once. So do find the solutions for a,b,c. If you have any doubts in remaining parts kindly request them as a new question.

To find the probability a randomly selected senator is democrat and female.

Total number of ways of selecting one senator = 100, As there are 100 senators and we need to choose one among them.

Total number of Democrats who are females = 17.

So the probability that randomly selected senator is democrat and female = 17/100 = 0.17

Total number of ways of selecting one senator = 100

Total number of Republicans and male = 45

Total number of republicans  = 53

total number of males = 75

Total number of males or repub...
