Sort by:

There are 30 2-digit numbers 12, 15, 18, , . . . . , 99 that are divisible by 3. Out of these 6 numbers, eg. 15, 30, 45. . . . , 90 are divisible by 5 as well. Hence remaining 24 numbers are favorable cases out of a total of 90 (from 10 to 99). Hence the required probability is 24/90 = 4/15 i.e.B..
