  1. The correct answer is c. 100.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Number of cards in the given pile = 24

    Total number of diamond cards in the pile = 8

    Probability of picking up a diamond in a draw of card from the pile is given by [tex]\frac{8}{24}[/tex].

    There are supposed to be 300 trials.

    Therefore number of times a diamond card is picked from the pile is given by 300 × [tex]\frac{8}{24}[/tex] = 100.

    Out of 300 trials to pick a card, about 100 times we can expect to have picked up a diamond card from the pile.
