Total no. of pizzas available=5

Total no possible for  selection of crust =  2

Total no possible for  selection of Toppings =  10

Thus by fundamental principle of counting  Total number of possible

choices are= 5x2x10=100

E= selection of  pizza with crispy and topping  pepperoni, sausage,onions, fresh herbs and black olives

= 1 x 5

=5

Thus

P(E)=5/100=1/20

Thus required probability is .05

= 1 x 6

=6

Thus

P(E)=6/100=3/50
