Solution

## The correct option is B 34When two dice are thrown simultaneously, the total number of possible outcomes is 62=36. The outcomes are shown below: (2,1), (1,2), (4,1), (3,2), (2,3), (1,4), (6,1), (5,2), (4,3), (3,4), (2,5),(1,6), (6,3), (5,4), (4,5) (3,6) (6,5) (5,6) and (6,6) Thus, the total number of outcomes whose product is even is 27. ∴ Probability of getting two numbers whose product is even =Number of favourable outcomesTotal number of outcomes=2736=34 Hence, the correct answer is option b.
