\(\huge 17.~\) For a natural number \(n\ge2,\) there's a pocket that contains \(n\) cards where each card is written a different natural number from \(1\) to \(n.\) Choose 2 cards randomly, at the same time, from the pocket.

When choosing 2 cards randomly, at the same time, from \(n\) cards, the probability of choosing \(2\) particular cards is \(\dfrac{2}{\boxed{\text{ (a) }}}.\)

Therefore, if we let \(S\) be the sum of all product of the two chosen cards, \(E(X)=\dfrac{2}{\boxed{\text{ (a) }}}\times S.\)

Meanwhile, if we let \(r~(2\ge r \ge n)\) be the bigger number between the two chosen numbers,

\(\begin{align} S & = \sum_{r=2}^{n} \left[r\times\{1+2+3+ \cdots +(r-2)+(r-1)\}\right] \\ & =\sum_{r=2}^{n} \left\{r\times \frac{r(r-1)}{2}\right\} \\ & = \frac{1}{2}\sum_{r=2}^{n} (r^3-r^2) \\ & = \frac{1}{2}\sum_{r=1}^{n} (r^3-r^2) \\ & = \frac{n(n+1)(n-1)(\boxed{\text{ (b) }})}{24}\end{align}\)

To sum up,

\(E(X)=\dfrac{\boxed{\text{ (c) }}}{12}.\)
