Solution

The correct option is B

50%


In this case, after tossing the coin, there are 2 outcomes possible (head, tail).
Total outcomes = 2 ( win or loss)

Probability of an event is defined as

P(Event) = Number of favourable outcomesTotal number of outcomes

So, P( Winning) = 12

12= 0.5
0.5×100 = 50%
