Theoretical Probability in 7th Grade?

Boy am I out of the loop! I hung out with my friends four children last night while she was having surgery and her hubby was at the hospital too. We had a blast. The girls range from age 4 to 12. While the 12 year old was doing her homework, she asked my opinion on one of her questions she was working on. She was doing theoretical probability! In 7th grade! She had questions like “if you drew 12 cards from a deck of cards, how many clubs do you think you would get, and why”. “If all of the diamonds were removed from the deck and you drew 12 cards again, how many clubs do you think you would get and why?” I don’t remember what I was doing in math in 7th grade (a million years ago…) – but I sure don’t recall it being that!
