Taking a general Case,

In a town with a population of $$n$$, a person sends 2 letters to 2 random distinct people in the town, each of whom repeats the procedure. Thus, for each letter received, two letters are sent to 2 random distinct people (could even be to the person who sent the letter).

It is Assumed that all the letters reach their respective destination.

Just If the probability Of Letter to reach their respective Destination is $$\dfrac{1}{2}$$.

Then What Is the probability that in the first $$m$$ stages, the person who started the chain letter will not receive a letter .
