Abstract [en]

Probability, related calculations and its interpretations are sometimes hard for people to grasp. This may be due to unreasonable or counterintuitive situations that they find in them. Here I take few probability and statistical paradoxes and discuss how people sometimes find them unreasonable, counterintuitive, etc. Often the problems and confusions are solved when the probabilities are interpreted correctly.
