# Which of following Cannot be probability of an event?

The probability of an event cannot be - 1.5 because Probability of an event can never be negative. The probability of happening of an event always lies between 0 to 1 (0 and 1 inclusive) i.e 0 ≤ P(E) ≤ 1 . Also in percentage, it lies between 0 % to 100 %(0 and 100 inclusive) .

Then, which of the following Cannot be a probability?

1 Expert Answer Probabilities must be between 0 and 1 or 0% and 100% and cannot be negative. Therefore, 100% is valid for a probability, . 8 is valid for a probability, 75% is valid for a probability, while -. 2 is not valid for a probability.

Furthermore, can the probability of an event be negative? Negative probability. The probability of the outcome of an experiment is never negative, although a quasiprobability distribution allows a negative probability, or quasiprobability for some events. These distributions may apply to unobservable events or conditional probabilities.

Also to know is, what is the probability of an event that is impossible?

Properties of Probability. In words, this means that the probability of an event must be a number between `0` and `1` (inclusive). In words: The probability of an impossible event is `0`. In words: The probability of an absolutely certain event is `1`.

What is a valid probability?

A probability function is a function which assigns probabilities to the values of a random variable. All the probabilities must be between 0 and 1 inclusive. The sum of the probabilities of the outcomes must be 1.
