**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (C)**

Sample spaces = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} n(S) = 6

Numbers divisible by 2 are 2, 4 and 6

n(E) =3

P(E) = 3/6=1/2

**2) Answer (D)**

Sample spaces = {(1, 1), (1, 2) … (1, 6)

(2, 1), (2, 2) … (2, 6)

(3, 1), (3, 2) … (3, 6)

(4, 1), (4, 2) … (4, 6)

(5, 1), (5, 2) … (5, 6)

(6, 1), (6, 2) … (6, 6)}

n(S) = 36

Favorable cases to get doublets are = {(1, 1), (2, 2), (3, 3), (4, 4), (5, 5), (6, 6)}

n(E) = 6

Probability = n(E)/n(S) =6/36=1/6

**3) Answer (A)**

n(s)=((1,1),(1,2),…….(6,6)) n(s)=36

Favorable cases to get prime numbers as sum= {(1,1) (1,2) (1,4) (1,6) (2,1), (2,3) (2,5) (3,2), (3,4) (4,1) (4,3) (5,2) (5,6) (6,1), (6,5)}

n(A)= 15 P(A)=n(A)/n(s) =15/36=5/12

**4) Answer (A)**

n(S) = 6×6=36

Event of getting a sum of numbers shown on the two faces divisible by 5 or 6 = [(1,4), (1,5), (2,3), (2,4), (3,2), (3,3), (4,1), (4,2),(4,6),(5,1), (5,5),(6,4), (6,6)]

n(E) =13 P(E) = n(E)/n(S) =13/36

**5) Answer (D)**

Let the numbers thrown on 4 dice be a,b,c,d

a+b+c+d=10 a,b,c,d lie between 2 and 5.

Only case valid are {2,2,2,4},{2,2,3,3}

Total no. of cases in{2,2,2,4}=4

Total No. of cases in{2,2,3,3}=6

Total cases=10 Now, x+y+z+w=10

Where x,y,z,w lie between 1 and 6.

Each of x,y,z,w has to be at least 1.

So the valid cases of the above equation is $^9C_3$

But it will include 4 cases 0f {7,1,1,1}

Total cases= $^9C_3$-4=80

Hence probability=10/80=1/8=0.125

**6) Answer (A)**

P(X<8 || X>=11) = 1 – P(8) – P(9) – P(10)

P(8) => a+b+c = 8 and each of them must be at least 1 and not more than 6 => $^7C_2$ ways = 21 ways

P(9) => a+b+c = 9 and each of them must be at least 1 and not more than 6 => ($^8C_2-(3*^2C_2$) ways = 25 ways

P(10) => a+b+c = 10 and each of them must be at least 1 and not more than 6 => $(^9C_2 – (3*^3C_2))$ ways = 27 ways

Total possibilities = 21+25+27 = 73

P(X<8 || X>=11) = $1-\frac{73}{216}$ = $\frac{143}{216}$

**7) Answer (A)**

The possibilities for getting a sum of 14 are:

6, 6, 2 -> 3 arrangements possible

6, 5, 3 -> 6 arrangements possible

6, 4, 4 -> 3 arrangements possible

5, 5, 4 -> 3 arrangements possible

Starting with 5, for the set 6, 5, 3, there are 2 arrangements possible and for the set 5, 5, 4, there are 2 arrangements possible.

So, required probability = (2+2)/15 = 4/15

**8) Answer (D)**

Number of favourable cases = 6

Total number of cases = 6*6 = 36

So, probability = 1/6

**9) Answer (D)**

There should be at least 2 6s. The other 9 can be obtained in 6+3, 5+4 = 2 ways

So, the combinations are 6+6+6+3, which can be arranged in 4!/3! = 4 ways

6+6+5+4, which can be arranged in 4!/2! = 12 ways.

So, the total number of ways = 4 + 12 = 16 ways

**10) Answer (B)**

P = P(A wins on 1st throw)+P(A wins on 3rd throw)+P(A wins on 5th throw)+…..and so on

P = (1/6)+(5/6*5/6*1/6)+…… = (1/6)/[1-(25/36)] = 6/11

**11) Answer (B)**

The number of different permutations possible with two throws of dice is equal to 6*6=36

For the sum of the rolls to equal 2, both the rolls should be equal to 1.

Hence, the probability equals $\frac{1}{36}$

**12) Answer (C)**

Number of ways such that sum is 8 => (2,6), (3,5), (4,4), (5,3), (6,2)

=> 5 possible cases.

Total number of cases = 6*6 = 36

Probability = $\frac{5}{36}$

**13) Answer (C)**

Sum is greater than 8 => 9, 10, 11, 12 are possibilities.

Sum = 9 => (3,6), (6,3), (4,5), (5,4)

Sum = 10 => (4,6), (6,4), (5,5)

Sum = 11 => (5,6), (6,5)

Sum = 12 => (6,6)

=> 10 possibilities

=> probability = $\frac{10}{36}$ = $\frac{5}{18}$

**14) Answer (B)**

Let’s factorize 2352 into its prime factors.

2352 = 16 * 3 * 49 = $2^4 * 3 * 7^2 $.

To be a perfect square, the number should have prime factors with even indices. Hence, for 3 to have an even index, the number should be multiplied with 3.

**15) Answer (B)**

Let a, b and c be the numbers that appear on the 3 dice.

a + b + c = 10

Each of a, b and c are at least 1.

=> So, the equation changes to x + y + z = 7

This can be done in $^9C_2$ = 36 ways.

But, none of a, b or c can be more than 6. So, we need to remove cases where any of x, y or z is more than 5.

These cases are:

If (x, y, z) is (7, 0, 0). This can be done in $^3C_2$ = 3 ways.

If (x, y, z) is (6, 1, 0). This can be done in 3! ways = 6 ways.

Total number of ways = 9 ways

Number of required ways = 36 – 9 = 27

Total number of combinations = 6 * 6 * 6 = 216

=> Probability = $\frac{27}{216}$ = $\frac{1}{8}$

**16) Answer (D)**

A sum of 16 can be obtained in the following ways (the maximum on each dice is 6):

6 + 5 + 5

6 + 6 + 4

The first combination can be arranged among the three dice in 3!/2! = 3 ways

The second combination can be arranged in 3!/2! = 3 ways

So, total number of ways in which a sum of 16 can be obtained = 3 + 3 = 6 ways

**17) Answer (B)**

The probability of getting an even number from the dice = no. of favorable outcomes(2,4,6)/ total number of outcomes(1,2,3,4,5,6) = P(e) = 3/6 = 1/2

The probability of getting a King from a pack of 52 cards = P(k) = no. of favorable outcomes (4 Kings)/ total number of outcomes(52 cards) = 4/52 = 1/13

Since, both events are independent, the required probability = P(e) x P(k) = 1/2 x 1/13 = 1/26

**18) Answer (D)**

Let P(O1) be the probability of getting an odd no. when the dice is thrown first and P(O2) when the dice is thrown for the second time.

We need to find the probability that either the first or second time the outcome would be an odd number i.e. P(O1 U O2)

Since P(O1) and P(O2) are independent, P(O1 U O2) = P(O1) + P(O2) – P(O1)P(O2) = 3/6 + 3/6 – 3/6 x 3/6 = 3/4

**19) Answer (E)**

favorable outcomes = E = (1,5) (5,1) (2,4) (4,2) (3,3)

Thus, no of favorable outcomes = n(E) = 5

Total no. of outcomes = n(S) = 6 x 6 = 36

Thus, the required probability = n(E)/n(S) = 5/36

**20) Answer (D)**

When two dices are thrown simultaneously, the total possible outcomes are 6*6 = 36

Instead of calculating the outcomes where the sum is less than 9, we can easily calculate the cases where the sum is greater than or equal to 9. Such cases are

(5,4), (4,5), (6,3), (3,6), (5,5), (6,4), (4,6), (6,5), (5,6), (6,6)

So there are 10 cases. Hence the probability that sum is greater than or equal to 9 is $\frac{10}{36}$ = $\frac{5}{18}$

So the probability that sum is less than 9 is 1- $\frac{5}{18}$ = $\frac{13}{18}$

**21) Answer (B)**

The probability of getting 3 at least once = 1 – probability of not getting 3 in any of the throws.

= 1 – $\frac{5}{6}*\frac{5}{6}$

= 1- 25/36 = 11/36

So the correct option to choose is B- 11/36

**22) Answer (B)**

Total possible cases = 6*6 =36

Favorable cases = (1,5), (2,4),(3,3),(4,2),(5,1)

So the favorable cases are 5.

Hence the required probability is 5/36

**23) Answer (D)**

Each of the dice has to show up a number other than 4.

So there are five possible outcomes for each of the dice.

So number of favourable ways = 5*5 = 25.

Total number of ways = 6*6 = 36.

Probability = 25/36.

**24) Answer (B)**

We can use the 6×6 matrix to find out the number of ways in which atleast one of the dice shows up a three.

The favourable cells are as highlighted in green.

Thus the number of favourable ways = 11.

Probability = 11/36.

**25) Answer (D)**

For the product to be an odd number, the outcomes of both the dice should be odd.

The favorable Event = E = {(1,1), (1,3), (1,5), (3, 5), (5,3), (5,1), (3,1), (3,3), (5,5) }

Total number of possible outcomes = 6 x 6 = 36

Thus, the required probability = 9/36 = 1/4
