1. If n coins are tossed simultaneously what is the total number of outcomes?

a) 2^{n-2}

b) 2^{n-1}

c) 2^{n}

d) 2^{n+1}

Explanation: If n coins are tossed simultaneously total number of possible outcomes are 2

^{n}.

For 2 coins, it is 4. For 3 coins it is 8 etc.

2. If four dice are rolled simultaneously then what is the total number of possible outcomes?

a) 6

b) 36

c) 216

3. If two dice are simultaneously rolled then what is probability of getting sum 4?

a) 1/6

b) 1/4

c) 1/12

d) 1/9

Explanation: If two dice are simultaneously rolled then total number of possible outcomes is 6*6 =36.

We can get 4 as sum in these cases {(1,3), (2,2), (3,1)}. So, probability of getting sum 4 is 3/36 = 1/12.

4. If two dice are simultaneously rolled then what is probability of getting sum 11?

a) 1/6

b) 1/4

c) 1/9

d) 1/18

Explanation: If two dice are simultaneously rolled then total number of possible outcomes is 6*6 =36.
