## Answer

The correct option is **C**:
$$
\frac{1}{4}
$$

Let $E$ represent the event of Vishwa winning the match. Conversely, the event of Anand winning the match would be denoted as (not $E$).

Given: $$ P(E)=\frac{\text{Number of outcomes favorable to } E \text{ }}{\text{Total number of outcomes}} = 0.75 = \frac{3}{4} $$

Since the sum of probabilities of all possible outcomes in a probability distribution always equals 1, we have: $$ P(E) + P(\text{not } E) = 1 $$

Thus, $$ P(\text{not } E) = 1 - P(E) = 1 - \frac{3}{4} = \frac{1}{4} $$

Therefore, the probability of Anand winning the match is: $$ \frac{1}{4} $$
