We study the probability that randomly chosen elements of prescribed type in a finite simple classical group G generate G; in particular, we prove a conjecture of Kantor and Lubotzky in this area. The probabilistic approach is then used to determine the finite simple classical quotients of the modular group PSL2(Z), up to finitely many exceptions.
