Tick (✓) the correct answer:

Two coins are tossed simultaneously. What is the probability of getting one head and one tail?

(a) $\frac{1}{4}$

(b) $\frac{1}{2}$

(c) $\frac{3}{4}$

(d) $\frac{2}{3}$


(b) $\frac{1}{2}$

When two coins are tossed, the possible outcomes are HH, HT, TH and TT.

Total number of outcomes $=4$

Number of outcomes with one head and one tail $=2$

Now, $\mathrm{P}_{\text {(one head and one tail) }}=\frac{2}{4}=\frac{1}{2}$
