**Q.**

Which of the following arguments are correct and which are not correct? Give reasons for your Solution:

If two coins are tossed simultaneously there are three possible outcomes—two heads, two tails, or one of each. Therefore, for each of these outcomes, the probability is $\frac{1}{3}$.

If a die is thrown, there are two possible outcomes—an odd number or an even number. Therefore, the probability of getting an odd number is $\frac{1}{2}$
