    Answer: (1) 9/20

    Explanation:-
    20 tickets serially numbered from 1 to 20 are mixed and one ticket is taken out randomly,
    The tickets  will be multiple of 3 and 5 = 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 12, 15, 18, 20
    Then, the number of tickets of the multiple of 3 and 5 = 9
    The total number of tickets = 20

    Then, the probability of the tickets of the multiple of 3 and 5 = 9/20

    Hence, the answer is (1) 9/20.
