Quen: suppose that all the residents of a particular town are bald or have brown hair or have black hair. Furthermore, each resident has blue eyes or brown eyes. We select one resident at random. Give a sample space s for this experiment and define, as subsets, these events:
A: the selected resident is bald​
B: the selected resident has blue eyes​
C: the selected resident has brown hair and brown eyes.​

This is a very basic problem, just checking your understanding of what "sample space" and "event" mean. Please look at the definitions and examples you have been given, and make an attempt to express the sample space and each event as sets.

To some extent, the form of your answer depends on how the topic is being presented in your class, which I know nothing about; if you can't propose an answer, please show us an example from the text showing how they describe a sample space. It may be in symbols or in words or both.
