      A 13/55 Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
      B 11/55 Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
      C 3/5 Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
      D 13/15 Correct Answer Incorrect Answer

      Solution

      There will be two cases: Case I: 2 violet, 1 (grey or black) Probability = 4C2 × 8C1/ 12C3 = 12/55 Case II: all violet Probability = 4C3/12C3 = 1/55 Total probability = 12/55 + 1/55 = 13/55
