Explanation:

There are only two mutually exclusive possibilities for each complex electronic system: being defective or being not defective:

• Number of complex electronic systems: 7
• Nmber of defective systems: 2
• Number of not defective systems: 5

Probability that no defective systems are found in the sample is the equal to the probability of selecting them consecutively without replacement and finding each one is not defective:

• Porbability the first is not defective × probability the second is not defective
• 5/7 × 4/6 = 20/42 = 10/21
