Solution

## The correct option is C 12When two dice are thrown simultaneously, the total number of possible outcomes is 62=36. Let A be the event of getting a sum of outcomes as an odd number. Thus, the favourable outcomes are (1,2),(1,4),(1,6),(2,1),(2,3),(2,5),(3,2),(3,4),(3,6),(4,1),(4,3),(4,5),(5,2),(5,4),(5,6),(6,1),(6,3),(6,5). Thus, the number of favourable outcomes is 18. ∴ P(A)=Number of favourable outcomes Total number of outcomes=1836=12 Hence, the correct answer is option c.
