Solution

## The correct option is D {1, 2, 3,4}When we throw a dice what can happen?? One of the following numbers will appear. {1, 2,3,4,5 or 6} So sample space is {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} Event A is described as throwing a 5 or 6 So A = {5,6} Now complement of A = S – A {1,2,3,4,5,6} - {5, 6} {1,2,3,4} Basically complement of A means not A. So everything in sample space except A is complement of A.
