Thanks Rajat, The idea here is to share knowledge with like minded people. 
Re: The Monty Hall Problem  
Hi TG I am not able to do the copy paste the monty hall problem as when i try to do that it comes till point1.please help me with that. Thanks and Regards Eshika 
Re: The Monty Hall Problem  
Well a very fact we all would appreciate about probability is that its totally dependent on your line of thinking.. and how you percieve the situation.. well the situation is itself a conjecture..and a very difficult think to understand unless a deep study is made... well what has been explained has been done by people who master the science of probaility..
but the queries raised ny SHANKAR and Saurab are good.. considering the fact that we are here by encountering one problem but at two different instances with different situations... so the answers about allocation of probability might change... In case 1... assigning probability to each door ws 1/3 incase two the scenario has changed as one of the doors been opened and you are asked whether to switch or not... this is a different problem in itself... weighing the probable response in terms of probabilities : my thought process says either of the two may happen: a> as shankar and saurab said.. 50% coz two options are there b> considering the two problems as a part of same query... sticking to my choice of 1/3 .. so the other door will have a probability of 2/3. but this 2/3 probability (as a matter of fact also my choise of 1/3) is associatted with a probability of (1/2) of being correct... so this has to be incorporated to in making my finall judgement.... what you all say... http://math.ucsd.edu/~crypto/Monty/montybg.html

Re: The Monty Hall Problem  
aye Vivek... superb thinkin.... 
Re: The Monty Hall Problem  
yes, that is correct. i appreciate it! but hadn't u took it from the movie 21 ?really good movie. 
Re: The Monty Hall Problem  
i don't think monty hall is right while calculating probability.....i have understood but i,m not getting why this is always work.....
