Probability = # of positive events / # of all possible events As the event B restricts the number of consecutive cards that result in a positive outcome (only consecutive face cards), it means that the numerador of the formula to find the probability is smaller, while the denominator remains unchanged. That means that the probabilty calculated for the event A is greater than the probability of the event B. So, the answer is that the event A is more likely than event B.
