Solution

## The correct option is C 1The event here is tossing of a coin. As both the sides of the coin are same, Number of possible outcomes = 1 (heads) Number of favourable outcomes = 1 (as jai calls heads) Probability of Jai’s win, P(E) = NumberoffavourableoutcomesNumberofpossibleoutcomes = 1. Thus, this is a certain event as there is no way Jai is going to lose. The probability of a certain event is 1.
