Think about it. These are pretty basic probability problems.

How many clubs are in a deck? 13. The prob of drawing the first is 13/52.

Assuming no replacement, there are 51 cards and 12 clubs left after drawing the first. So, the prob. Is 12/51

(13/52)(12/51)=1/17. See? Now, you try the others and lets see your progress. OK?

For b, how many red cards are there? You have hearts and diamonds.

c, How many queens are in a deck?

d, How many red queens?

Do these as I done the first and you'll be OK.
