The probability of drawing that specific card is $\frac{1}{52}$
The probability of drawing a diamond is $\frac{1}{4}$

#### Explanation:

Each card is unique; therefore, the chance of drawing a specific card is $\frac{1}{52}$. There is one of each card over a total number of $52$ cards.

Cards are either diamonds, spades, hearts, or clubs. There are an equal amount of each in a standard $52$ card deck. There are $13$ of each kind.

To find the probability of drawing a diamond, put the total number of cards that are diamonds over the total number of cards.

$\frac{13}{52} = \frac{1}{4}$
