There are 6 marbles in the box numbered from 1 to 6

(i) Number of marble with number 2 on it = 1

$\therefore$ Probability of getting a marble with number 2

$=\frac{number\ of\ favourable\ outcomes}{number\ of\ possible\ outcomes}$

$= \frac{1}{6}$

(ii) Number of marble with number 5 on it = 1

$\therefore$ Probability of getting a marble with number 5

$=\frac{number\ of\ favourable\ outcomes}{number\ of\ possible\ outcomes}$

$= \frac{1}{6}$
