Examine each of the following statements and comment:
(i) If two coins are tossed at the same time, there are 3 possible outcomes – two heads, two tails, or one of each. Therefore, for each outcome, the probability of occurrence is 1/3.
(ii) If a die is thrown once, there are two possible outcomes – an odd number or an even number. Therefore, the probability of obtaining an odd number is � and the probability of obtaining an even number is 1/2.
(i) Incorrect statement
If 2 coins are tossed at the same time = 4 possible outcomes (HH, HT, TH, TT}
Therefore probability of each outcome = 1/4
(ii) Correct statement
When a dice is thrown once, event of occurrence of 3 odd numbers and 3 even numbers are possible out of 6 outcomes. Therefore, P(even number) = P(odd number) =
