    A couple of points.
    Seriously, if you cannot figure this out by yourself you should not be teaching mathematics.
    If you have no choice, then ANY GCSE textbook will include examples of all of the above.

    yes i could use a textbook thank you very much for that advice but what about out there examples like the probablity of you choicing a red car to a black or what cup cake to choose or any examples of real life suitations which gets the kids really excited! i find the best thing is to talk to other teacher about what they have done and try and adapt those ideas to bring out really stimulus to the kids not just take it out of the textbook!!!

    Combine both ideas - calculating the probability of consuming a cupcake in a red car is certain to have them dancing with joy.

    You could do a search on the NCETM website eg https://www.ncetm.org.uk/resources/24053, or the Excellence Gateway eg http://tlp.excellencegateway.org.uk/tlp/stem/stem-mm.html or the National STEM Centre Library eg http://www.nationalstemcentre.org.uk/elibrary/maths/search?term=probability or ...

    I feel uncomfortable with the word "choose" here. Probability is about random events; choice is about personal preference.
