Possible outcomes when a coin is tossed = {H,T}

Possible outcomes when a die is thrown = {1,2,3,4,5,6}

Let R1 and R2 denote the event that a red ball is drawn

and B1, B2, B3 denote the event that a blue ball is drawn 

If H occurs, a die is thrown.

S1 = {H1, H2, H3, H4, H5, H6}

If T occurs, a ball from a box which contains 2  red and 3 black balls is drawn.

S2 = {TR1 , TR2 , TB1 , TB2 , TB3}

The required sample space is:

S = {TR1 , TR2 , TB1 , TB2 , TB3 , H1, H2, H3, H4, H5, H6}
