Solution

The correct option is **C** B is a certain event

When a die is rolled, all the possible outcomes ={1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

As we can see, 7 does not belong the the set of the possible outcomes. So, on rolling a die 7 will never appear. Hence, A is an impossible event.

Again, we can see, all the possible outcomes is less than 9, we will always get the outome as less than 9 upon rolling a die. Hence, B is a certain event.
