c. P(w) denotes the probability of screening a driver and finding that he or she is not intoxicated

Step-by-step explanation:

P(W¯¯) denotes the probability that a given person  is not intoxicated when screened

because P(W¯¯) is the probability all possible outcomes that are not a part of W

P(W¯¯)  = 1 –  P(W)

P(W¯¯) = 1 – 0.00744

P(W¯¯) = 0.99256
