See explanation.

Step-by-step explanation:

a) The sample space is as follows:

(Roberto, Dominique), (Roberto, Clarice), (Roberto, John), (Dominique, Clarice), (Dominique, John), (Clarice, John). 6 in total.

b) Roberto and Clarice is one of six samples, so the probability is 1/6

c) Clarice appears in 3 of the samples, so the probability is 3/6 = 1/2.

d) Roberto does not appear in 3 samples, so the probability is 3/6 = 1/2.
