Abstract
A group L is primitive monolithic if L has a unique minimal normal subgroup, N , and trivial Frattini subgroup. By P_{L,N}(k) we denote the conditional probability that k randomly chosen elements of L generate L , given that they project onto generators for L/N. In this article we show that P_{L,N}(k) is controlled by P_{Y,S}(2), where N≅S^{r }and Y is a 2generated almost simple group with socle S that is contained in the normalizer in L of the first direct factor of N . Information about P_{L,N}(k) for L primitive monolithic yields various types of information about the generation of arbitrary finite and profinite groups.
