From the author's introductory paragraphs: ``Probability methods have often been applied successfully to solve various combinatorial problems which in some cases have been (and still are) unassailable by other methods. A systematic discussion of this method can be found in my recent book with J. Spencer [*P. Erdös* and *J. Spencer*, Probabilistic methods in combinatorics (1974; Zbl 308.05001)]. In the present paper I give some new results obtained by this method. I do not give detailed proofs, but by following the very sketchy outlined instructions, they can easily be supplied by the interested reader who is familiar with the method.''
