a little help with this one will also be appreciated !

The number of bugs in a computer is a Poisson random variable with a rate parameter of 3 bugs a year. When a bug occurs, a technician A is called to fix it with probability 0.5, a technician B is called to fix it with probability 0.2 and a technician C with probability 0.1. The probability that C won't be called to fix any bug during a year is:

a. e^-2.7 b. e^-0.3 c. 1-e^-2.7 d. 1-e^-0.3

cheers !!
