## Sagot :

1.

**Initial Number of Pockets:**

You start with a pair of cargo pants that has a total of 6 pockets.

2.

**Pockets Checked:**

You've already checked 2 out of those 6 pockets and did not find the money in either of them.

3.

**Remaining Pockets:**

Since there are 6 pockets in total and you've checked 2, there are [tex]\(6 - 2 = 4\)[/tex] pockets remaining.

4.

**Finding Probability:**

The money must be in one of the remaining 4 pockets. Therefore, the probability that the money will be in the next pocket you check is calculated by taking the reciprocal of the number of remaining pockets.

[tex]\[ \text{Probability} = \frac{1}{\text{number of remaining pockets}} = \frac{1}{4} \][/tex]

Thus, the probability that the money will be in the next pocket you check is [tex]\(\frac{1}{4}\)[/tex].

From the given choices, the correct answer is:

D. [tex]\(\frac{1}{4}\)[/tex]
