Tick (✓) the correct answer:

A die is thrown. What is the probability of getting an even number?

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

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

(c) $\frac{5}{6}$

(d) $\frac{1}{6}$


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

Total number of outcomes $=6$ (Numbers: $1,2,3,4,5$ and 6 ) The even numbers are 2, 4, and 6 .

Number of favourable outcomes $=3$

Now, $\mathrm{P}_{(\text {even number })}=\frac{3}{6}=\frac{1}{2}$
