One card is drawn at random from a pack of 52 cards. What is the probability that the card drawn is a face card (Jack, Queen and King only)?
 1 13
 3 13
 1 4
 9 52
Explanation:

Clearly, there are 52 cards, out of which there are 12 face cards.

 P (getting a face card) = 12 = 3 . 52 13

King, Queen and Jack are called as FACE cards.

King, Queen, Jack and Ace are called as HONOR cards.

In the question itself they mentioned that face card (king, queen and joker) so 4c1+4c1+4c1/52c2=3/13.

n(s) = 52c1.
n(e) = 4c1+4c1+4c1.
p(e) = 12/52 = 3/13.

@Sushmitha.

If the only king is mentioned as face card then you have to solve as per king only.

Ace also a face card.

Ace is also a face card. But in question, they have clearly mentioned (king, queen, jack only).

So we consider only these to get the answer.

So it is clearly 3/13.
