A box contains $10$ screws, $3$ of which are defective. Two screws are drawn at random with replacement. The probability that none of two screws is defective will be

1. $100\%$
2. $50\%$
3. $49\%$
4. None of these.

There are  $7$  non-defective balls in the box.

The probability that both the balls turn out to be non-defective would be:  $\frac{^{7}C_1}{^{10}C_1}$ $\times$  $\frac{^{7}C_1}{^{10}C_1}$  $=$  $0.49$  or  $49\%$

Option C is correct.
P(UD) be Probability of non-defective screws=7/10

P(D) be Probability of Defective screws=3/10

D1  First defective screw drawn P(D1) = 3/10.

D2 second defective screw drawn P(D2) = 3/10.

probability that none of two screws is defective will be $P(\overline{D1}\cap \overline{D2})=P(\overline{D1})*P(\overline{D2})$ { as both events are independent }
=$\frac{7}{10} * \frac{7}{10}=\frac{49}{100}= 49%$ %

As only one two outcomes are possible so D1 or D2 complement will be non-defective screw UD1 OR UD2
