Question 1
In a certain town, the probability that it will rain in the afternoon is known to be 0.6. Moreover, meteorological data indicates that if the temperature at noon is less than or equal to 25^{\circ}C, the probability that it will rain in the afternoon is 0.4. The temperature at noon is equally likely to be above 25^{\circ}C, or at/below 25^{\circ}C. What is the probability that it will rain in the afternoon on a day when the temperature at noon is above 25^{\circ}C?
A
0.4
B
0.6
C
0.8
D
0.9
