1. In a carnival game, players spin a wheel that lands on one of four colors: red, blue, yellow, or green, each corresponding to a certain prize. The outcomes for 100 spins of the wheel are recorded. The carnival host claims each color is equally likely to be spun. Which set of relative frequencies gives the strongest evidence that the carnival host is NOT telling the truth?

2. A deck of 52 cards has four suits: hearts, spades, diamonds, and clubs. There are 13 cards in each suit. You draw one card at random from the deck. What is the probability it's a heart?
