We have, the first five positive integers arc 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.
 We can selected two numbers from 5 numbers is
5P2 = 20 different ways
Let X be the random variable denoting the largest of two numbers 
P(X=2) = (1/5*1/4)+(1/5*1/4) = 2/20
P(X=3) =  (2/5*1/4)+(1/5*2/4) = 4/20
 P(X=4) =  (3/5*1/4)+(1/5*3/4) = 6/20
P(X=5) =  (4/5*1/4)+(1/5*4/5) = 8/20
Mean E(X) = 2*2/20 + 3*3/30 + 4*6/20 + 5*8/20
                   = 4
Therefore mean of probability distribution is 4.
Variance V(X) = E(X^2) - (E(X))^2  =>   17 - 16 = 1
Therefore variance of probability distribution is 1.
