 A a fraction B a decimal C a percent D all of the above
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -Probabilities can be expressed as proportions that range from 0 to 1, and they can also be expressed as percentages ranging from 0% to 100%. A probability of 0 indicates that there is no chance that a particular event will occur, whereas a probability of 1 indicates that an event is certain to occur.

Detailed explanation-2: -Probabilities can be represented as a ratio, percentage, fraction or as a decimal; I often point this out to students, so they are alert to the multiple ways we represent odds.

Detailed explanation-3: -Probability is the branch of mathematics concerning the occurrence of a random event, and four main types of probability exist: classical, empirical, subjective and axiomatic.

Detailed explanation-4: -Probabilities can be computed in terms of ratios. Since any ratio can be turned into a fraction, decimal, or percent, you can also turn any probability into a fraction, decimal, or percent.
