A. The probability that both events will happen at the same time is very small. B. The probabilities of the events happening are identical. C. The chance of one event happening has no effect on the other. D. The probability of each event happening cannot be determined. I was leaning towards C, since independent values don't require an influential factor, but not sure if I am on the right track.
