## This is the Story of a Clever Student:

A CA Student far away from his preparation upto the last minute of his exams, has got a thought of passing the exam using the "THEORY OF PROBABILITY".

His assumptions were as follows:

(1) The Question paper will be asked for 100 marks divided into 20Questions (Including Subquestions).

(2) He has on an average 20 Chapters to prepare in a week time.

(3) There will be "PROBABILITY" of changing in previous "PROBABILITY(ies)".

Basing on the above assumptions, he started the last week of preparation as follows.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Particulars                                            Probability of getting a Question             Probability of not getting a Question                                                                                                     form this Chapter                                        form this Chapter

_____________________________________________________________________________________

CHAPTER - 1

(One Question out of 20 Questions)               = 1/20      = 0.05                                               1-0.05 = 0.95

Being the probability of NOT GETTING THE QUESTION FROM THAT CHAPTER IS HIGH he safely left that Chapter.

Next.............

CHAPTER - 2                                                                     0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 13                                                                   0.05                                                                0.95

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Average                                                              = (0.05X20)/20 = 0.05                                     = (0.95X20)/20 = 0.95

He finally concluded that the PROBABILITY OF GETTING A QUESTION FROM THE ENTIRE SYLLABUS IS LESS THAN THE PROBABILITY OF NOT GETTING A QUESTION FROM THE ENTIRE SYLLABUS.

Then he left the Preparation for ever............................

He started again his "THEORY OF PROBABILITY" for his results as under................

For PAPER - I

PROBABILITY of Getting "40" out of "100 Marks" = 40 Marks out of 100 Marks = 40/100 = 0.40

HENCE,

PROBABILITY of Not Getting "40" out of "100 Marks" = 60 Marks out of 100 Marks = 60/100 = 0.60

Like wise he computed for all his Eight Papers and Finally Concluded that......

Average "PROBABILITY" of Not Getting 40 Marks out of 100 Marks  = (0.6 X 8 Papers) / 8 = 0.60 or 60%

HENCE HE WILL SURELY PASS THE EXAM WITHOUT PREPARATION....................

The ICAI declared the Result on a Fine Day and his result was Displayed as under........................

 The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India Examination Results,May 2010

Final (New Course) Examination Results

 ROLL Number 99999      *Check Merit Name ASHA JEEWAN Group I Financial Reporting Giving a Pass mark to you is a Chane out of 50000 Students appeared = 1/50000 = 0.00002 Fail Probability = 0.99998 As We prefer the Higher, YOU WAS "FAIL" Strategic Financial Management Same As Above Advanced Auditing and Professional Ethics Same As Above Corporate and Allied Laws Same as Above Total Four FAILS Result ("FAIL X 4") / 4  = FAIL Group II Advanced Management Accounting Same As Above Information Systems Control and Audit Same As Above Direct Tax Laws Same As Above Indirect Tax Laws Same As Above Total Four FAILS Result ("FAIL X 4") / 4 = FAIL Grand Total EIGHT FAILS

 IMPORTANT NOTE BY ICAI The result declared by ICAI is true for ever. You are requested to not check your result once again.

## MORAL OF THE STORY:

Our Hero ASHA JEEWAN learn a moral from his story as " The PROBABILITY OF MY THINKING BECOMES TRUE = 1/2 = 0.5, and The PROBABILITY OF OTHERS THINKING ALSO BECOME TRUE = 1/2 = 0.5.

### Then he left "THE THEORY OF PROBABILITY" for ever......................
