Sampling

Can you please tell me if this is correct?  Thanks

A selection of​ soft-drink users is asked to taste the two disguised soft drinks and indicate which they prefer. The accompanying data contains the results of a simulated challenge on a college campus.

a. Determine the probability that a randomly chosen student prefers Brand A.                                                                  
                                                                  
​P(Brand ​A) = 47/114                                                                  
                                                                  
b. Determine the probability that one of the students prefers Brand A and is less than 18 years old.

P(Brand A and Age <18​) = 7/114

c. Of those students who are less than 18 years​ old, calculate the probability that a randomly chosen student      
prefers​ (1) B and A and​ (2) Brand B.                                                                  
P(Brand A if Age <18​) = 6/114
​P(Brand B if Age <18​) = 6/114

P(Brand A if Age≥18​) =  34/114
​P(Brand B if Age≥18​) =  38/114

d. Of those students who are at least 18 years​ old, calculate the probability that a randomly chosen student                        
prefers​ (1) Brand A and​ (2) Brand B.                                                                  
P(Brand A  if Age ≥18​) = 38/114
​P(Brand B if Age≥18​) = 42/114

also, questions c and  aren't looking at the entire population, they are only looking at students less than 18.

I guess that could be a misreading of the question's intent though.
