#### Explanation:

There are a total of 31+10+19=60 tickets

Now the probability (P) of an event P(event) equals

#color(red)(|bar(ul(color(white)(a/a)color(black)("P(event)"=("number of favourable outcomes")/"Total possible outcomes")color(white)(a/a)|)))#

Here the favourable event is 'pulling' out a Line Leader ticket of which there are 31.

The total number of possible outcomes is 60.

#rArr"P(line leader)"=31/60#
