## MCAT Question A Day - 5/4/13 - Answer!

**The probability of parents having a daughter is 50%. What is the probability of parents having three daughters in a row?**

**A.**1/2

**B.**1/4

**C.**1/8

**D.**1/16

*The correct answer is (C). The chance of having a daughter is 1/2, but the chance of having two daughters in a row as independent events is 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4. Similarly, the chance of having three daughters in a row would be 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/8.*
