Answer:8.33% probability that Michael will be chosen first and Susan will be chosen second.

Step-by-step explanation:Initially, there are 4 people(Susan, John, Lisa, and Michael). The probability of Michael being chosen first is 1/4.

Now, suppose Michael was chosen.

There are 3 people(Susan, John and Lisa). The probability of Susan being chosen is 1/3.

What is the probability that Michael will be chosen first and Susan will be chosen second.Multiplying these probabilities

8.33% probability that Michael will be chosen first and Susan will be chosen second.
