Let X∈{0,1} and Y∈{0,1} be two random variables if P(X=0) =p and P(Y=0)=q then P(X+Y>=1) is equal to

1)pq+(1-p)(1-q)

2)pq

3)p(1-q)

4)1-pq

Best answer
 X∈{0,1}  Y∈{0,1}
i.e. for P(X+Y>=1) value of X and Y can be {(0,1),(1,0),(1,1)} 
So we can say , P(X+Y>=1) = 1-P(X+Y<1)
                                                  = 1- P(X=0,Y=0)
                                                 =1-  {P(X=0).P(Y=0)}
                                                 =1-pq
