I am in the process of debriefing a practice exam and confused on the answer.

Question: A continuous uniform distribution is bounded by zero and 20. The probability of an outcome equal to 12 is closest to:

a. 0.00

b. 0.05

c. 0.60

I put 0.05 because 1/20 chance of getting any random variable in the range.

However the answer key say 0.00 because the distribution is continuous, the probability of any specific outcome is zero.

If the question didn’t have the word “uniform” I would get it – but now I am just confused.
