    there are 52 cards and 4 of them are queens so there is a 4/52 chance of getting a queen that is 1/13

    dont over think it, there are 52 cards, and you can pick any one of them on a draw, and 4 out of the 52 are queens so 4/52 chance

    it just feels like what you typed is missing something. you're pulling a single card, which means you get 1 shot out of 52 to pull 1 of 4 queens

    for one suit each of them does have 13 cards. one of them is the queen , so 1 in 13 chance.

    it just occurred to me, based on the mult. choice answers I have, 1/13 can't be an answer. A)1:12 B)51;1 C)1:51 D:12:1
