The answer to D is incorrect. This is a reduced sample space problem. Since you know that it's a face card, it could be Jack, Queen, or King of 4 different suits, meaning the sample space is 12 cards. However, 4 of those cards are Kings. Therefore the probability of question D is 4/12, or 1/3. I think that's why the answer isn't A/D and C/E...there's only one pair of matching probabilities.
