How to Solve the Case Probability Riddle

Create two classes into which we may place singular events:

1) Those events which will transpire; and
2) Those events which will not transpire.

Next, assign probabilities:

A) Events in class 1 have a probability of 1.
B) Events in class 2 have a probability of 0.

Now, decide whether the event in which you are interested belongs in class 1 or class 2.

Read off the corresponding probability from A or B!

That was easy, wasn't it?
