Probability is represented by a number between and .

Probabilities are usually written in a fraction form that expresses the likelihood of the event occurring. The greater the fraction—or number—then there is a better probability of the event occurring.

Each of our answer choices use a standard deck of cards, which has total cards.

First, let's find the probability of each event:

Drawing a of hearts: There is only one of hearts in a standard deck; thus, the probability is:

Drawing a of diamonds: There is only one of diamonds in a standard deck; thus, the probability is:

Drawing a of spades: There is only one of spades in a standard deck; thus, the probability is:

Drawing a : There are four s in a standard deck; thus, the probability is:

This is the greatest probability and the correct answer.
