1. Which letter has the greatest probability of being picked?

--I think that E would. It has the most amount of tiles out of the other letters in the bag.

What is the probability of picking a blank?

--2%

Which letter has the least probability of being picked?

--J, K, Z, X, Q all only have one tile.

Which letters have the same probability of being picked? What are these probabilities?

--List the letters and their probabilities, (amount of tiles) of all that have the same amount of tiles.

Does any letter have a 0% chance of being picked? Explain.

--No, I don't personally think so, but I could be wrong. They all have a chance of being picked, but if there were letter(s) that had no chance of being picked, I would look at the letters with only one tile. They have a lesser chance of being picked than the tiles with no letters on them.
