P(H)=\frac{1}{2}

So, probability to get atleast one head = 1-P(no\: \: head)\geq 99

\therefore  1-\frac{1}{2^{n}}\geq \frac{99}{100}

=>\frac{1}{2^{n}}\leq \frac{1}{100}

=>{2^{n}}\geq {100}

=>n\geq 7

\therefore Minimum value of n will be = 7

So, option (4) is correct. 


Option 1)

5

Option 2)

6

Option 3)

Option 4)
