    Answer:

    0.225

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Total outcomes of choosing 5 out of 18 members = 18C5

    Outcomes of choosing 2 out 11 favourers, 3 out of 7 members  =          11C2 & 7C3

    Probability = Favourable outcomes / Total outcomes

    = ( 11C2 x 7C3 ) / 18C5

    [ { 11 ! / 2! 9! } {7 ! / 3! 4! } ]

           [ 18 ! / 5! 13! ]

    ( 55 x 35 ) /  8568

    1925 / 8568

    = 0.2246 ≈ 0.225
