Right option is (d) posterior probabilities

For explanation I would say: In Bayesian statistics, we calculate new probability after information becomes available due to new events and this is known as Posterior Probability. There is no term like Independent probabilities and Dependent probabilities, there are only independent events and dependent events. Interior probabilities represent probabilities of the intersection between two events.
