MCQ

A die is thrown once. The probability of getting an even number is

• 1/2

• 1/3

• 1/6

• 5/6

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.
