Question

- A carton of twelve eggs contains one that is spoiled. In how
many ways can a person choose three of these eggs and
- Get the one egg that is spoiled?
- Not get the one egg that is spoiled?

Answer #1

Since, In the question, there are few things which are not
mentioned clearly, so I’ve taken both the case, 1^{st} when
good eggs are identical and 2^{nd} when they are not. Also

answer will again be different.

Please let me know if you need any further explanation. Thank you
