Hint: The probability of an event is a number between 0 and 1, where, roughly speaking, 0 indicates impossibility of the event and 1 indicates certainty. The probability formula is used to compute the probability of an event to occur. To recall, the likelihood of an event happening is called probability.
- Probability Rule One (For any event $A, 0 \leq P(A) \leq 1)$
- Probability Rule Two (The sum of the probabilities of all possible outcomes is 1 )
- Probability Rule Three (The Complement Rule)
- Probabilities Involving Multiple Events.
- Probability Rule Four (Addition Rule for Disjoint Events)
- Finding $\mathrm{P}(\mathrm{A}$ and $\mathrm{B})$ using Logic.

Permutations and combinations, the various ways in which objects from a set may be selected, generally without replacement, to form subsets. This selection of subsets is called a permutation when the order of selection is a factor, a combination when order is not a factor.
The formula for permutations is: $\mathrm{nPr}=\mathrm{n} ! /(\mathrm{n}-\mathrm{r}) !$
The formula for combinations is: $\mathrm{nCr}=\mathrm{n!} /[\mathrm{r} !(\mathrm{n}-\mathrm{r}) !]$
A combination is a mathematical technique that determines the number of possible arrangements in a collection of items where the order of the selection does not matter. In combinations, we can select the items in any order. Combinations can be confused with permutations. In mathematics, a permutation of a set is, loosely speaking, an arrangement of its members into a sequence or linear order, or if the set is already ordered, a rearrangement of its elements. The word "permutation" also refers to the act or process of changing the linear order of an ordered set.

$\mathrm{C}\left(\mathrm{n}_{1} \mathrm{r}\right)+2 \mathrm{C}\left(\mathrm{n}_{1} \mathrm{r}-1\right)+\mathrm{C}(\mathrm{n}, \mathrm{r}-2)$
$={ }^{\mathrm{n}} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}}+2^{\mathrm{n}} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}-1}+{ }^{\mathrm{n}} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}-2}$
$={ }^{\mathrm{n}} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}}+{ }^{\mathrm{n}} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}-1}+{ }^{\mathrm{n}} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}-1}+{ }^{\mathrm{n}} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}-2} \ldots . .(1)$
Now we know that
${ }^{\mathrm{n}} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}}+{ }^{\mathrm{n}} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}-1}={ }^{\mathrm{n}+1} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}} \ldots . .(2)$
$\therefore \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}}+{ }^{\mathrm{n}} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}-1}={ }^{\mathrm{n}+1} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}}$
${ }^{\mathrm{n}} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}-1}+{ }^{\mathrm{n}} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}-2}={ }^{\mathrm{n}+1} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}-1}$
$\therefore(1)$ becomes
${ }^{\mathrm{n}+1} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}}+{ }^{\mathrm{n}+1} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}-1}={ }^{\mathrm{n}+2} \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{r}}[$ By Property Used in (2)]
$\Rightarrow \mathrm{C}(\mathrm{n}+2, \mathrm{r})$
Hence the correct option is D.

Note: One could say that a permutation is an ordered combination. The number of permutations of $\mathrm{n}$ objects taken $\mathrm{r}$ at a time is determined by the following formula:
$\mathrm{P}(\mathrm{n}, \mathrm{r})=\mathrm{n} !(\mathrm{n}-\mathrm{r}) ! \mathrm{n} !$ is read $\mathrm{n}$ factorial and means all numbers from 1 to $\mathrm{n}$ multiplied. Combinations are a way to calculate the total outcomes of an event where order of
the outcomes do not matter.
To calculate combinations, we will use the formula $\mathrm{nCr}=\mathrm{n!} / \mathrm{r!}^{*}(\mathrm{n}-\mathrm{r}) !,$ where $\mathrm{n}$ represents the total number of items, and $\mathrm{r}$ represents the number of items being chosen at a time. Thus, $\operatorname{nPr}(\mathrm{n}, \mathrm{r})$ The number of possibilities for choosing an ordered set of $\mathrm{r}$ objects $(\mathrm{a}$ permutation) from a total of n objects. Definition: $\operatorname{nPr}(\mathrm{n}, \mathrm{r})=\mathrm{n} ! /(\mathrm{n}-\mathrm{r}) ! \mathrm{nCr}(\mathrm{n}, \mathrm{r})$.
