# 25.(ii) Which of the following arguments are correct and which are not correct? Give reasons for your answer. (ii) If a die is thrown, there are two possible outcomes—an odd number or an even number. Therefore, the probability of getting an odd number is 1/2

H Harsh Kankaria

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

Total number of possible outcomes = 6

Number of odd number, {1,3,5} = 3

And, number of even numbers {2,4,6} = 3

Hence, both these events are equally likely

$\therefore P(getting\ an\ odd) = \frac{favourable\ outcomes}{total\ outcomes} = \frac{3}{6} = \frac{1}{2}$
