Solution

Given that the die has 6 faces marked by the given numbers as below:

Total number of outcomes = 6

1) For getting a positive integer, the favourable outcomes are 1, 2, 3

⇒ Number of favourable outcomes = 3

⇒ Required probability = `3/6 = 1/2`

2) For getting an integer greater than -3, the favourable outcomes are -2, -1, 1, 2, 3

⇒ Number of favourable outcomes = 5

⇒ Required probability = `5/6`

3) For getting the smallest integer, the favourable outcome is -2

⇒Number of  favourable outcomes = 1

⇒ Required probability = `1/6`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
