In the random experiment of tossing two unbiased dice, let E be the event of getting the sum 8 and F be the event of getting even numbers on both the dice. Then, I. P(E) = 7/36 II . P(F) = ⅓ Which of the following is the correct statement ?

In the random experiment of tossing two unbiased dice, let E be the event of getting the sum 8 and F be the event of getting even numbers on both the dice. Then,

I. P(E) = 7/36

II . P(F) = ⅓

Which of the following is the correct statement ?

1) Both I and II are correct

2) Neither I nor II is correct

3) I is correct, II is incorrect

4) I is incorrect, II is correct

Solution: Option (2) Neither I nor II is correct

When two dice are thrown, sample space = 36.

The probability of getting the sum 8 = 5/36.

The probability of getting even numbers on both the dice = 6/36

Hence, both the given statements are wrong.
