In communities with large HIV outbreaks, a heavy majority of recent HIV diagnosis were also diagnosed with hepatitis C. Suppose among a rural community in Ohio, 33% were diagnosed with both HIV and hepatitis C, whereas 40% had neither of these. The probability that someone was diagnosed with HIV is 0.41

**What is the probability that a randomly chosen person in this community was diagnosed with hepatitis C? (3 points)**

**Select one:**

**a. 0.59**

**b. 0.08**

**c. 0.52**

**d. 0.60**

**e. 0.43**

**Q 2**

**Question 2**

**What is the probability that a randomly chosen community member is diagnosed with HCV given that s/he does not have HIV? (2 points)**

**Select one:**

**a. 0.32**

**b. 0.41**

**c. 0.59**

**d. 0.62**

**e. 0.38**

**Q 3**

**Question 3**

**Are the events of being diagnosed with HIV and hepatitis C mutually exclusive? (2 points**

**Select one:**

**a. They are mutually exclusive because some people have both HIV and hepatitis C, this is shown by P( HIV∩HCV)=0.33 ≠0**

b. They are mutually exclusive because people can not have both HIV and hepatitis C, this is shown by P(*HIV∩HCV*)=0=0

c. They are not mutually exclusive because some people have both HIV and hepatitis C, this is shown by P(*HIV∩HCV*)=0.33 ≠0

d. They are not mutually exclusive because people can not have both HIV and hepatitis C, this is shown by P(*HIV∩HCV*)=0=0

e. Cannot be determined from the given information
