The probability of getting a total of 10 in a single throw of two dice is
A.

B.

C.

D.

Answer :

As 2 dice are thrown so there are 6×6 = 36 possibilities.


Let E denote the event of getting a total score of 5.


E = {(4,6),(5,5),(6,4)}


n(E)= 3


Hence,


P(E) = 3/36 = 1/12


As our answer matches only with option (b)


Option (b) is the only correct choice.
