There are 13 cards for each colour set(club, diamond, spade and heart) in a pack of 52 cards. So, in the 1st draw the probability of getting a card of any specific colour is 13/52. After you have made the 1st draw the probability of getting another card with the same colour is 12/51 as one card of that particular colour is already reduced from the pack. While the probability of getting another card of any other colour is 39/51. And this thing continues in similar manner for the following draws.
