A subset T of vertices in a hypergraph H is a transversal if T has a nonempty intersection with every edge of H. The transversal number of H is the minimum size of a transversal in H. A subset S of vertices in a graph G with no isolated vertex is a total dominating set if every vertex of G is adjacent to a vertex of S. The minimum cardinality of a total dominating set in G is the total domination number of G. In this note, we improve previous probabilistic upper bounds given for the transversal number of a hypergraph and the total domination number of a graph given by the first two authors in [Discrete Math. Algorithms Appl. 11 (1) (2019), 1950004, 6 pp.].
