Solution

## The correct option is A 15Odd prime on a die are 3 and 5. Let event A = one of the dice show odd prime number, and event B = remaining dice also shows odd prime number. P(BA)=n(A⋂B)n(A).A={(3,1)(3,2),(3,3),(3,4),(3,5),(3,6),(5,1),...(5,6),(1,3),(2,3),...(6,3),(1,5),...(5,5),}And A⋂B={(3,3).(5,5),(3,5)(5,3)}∴P(AB)=420=15.
