Solution

Total number of outcomes = 6.

Out of the given numbers, even numbers are 2, 4 and 6.

Numbers of favourable outcomes = 3.

∴ P(getting an even number) = `("Number of favourable outcomes")/"Number of all possible outcomes"`

`= 3/6 = 1/2`

Thus, the probability of getting an even number is `1/2`.

Hence, the correct answer is option `1/2`.
