The probability of obtaining an even prime number on each die, when a pair of dice is rolled is
A. 0
B. 1 / 3
c. 1 / 12
D. 1 / 36

Solution:

Answer: D. 1 / 36

Explanation: Given A pair of dice is rolled.

Hence the number of outcomes =36

The chance of getting an even prime number on each die is represented by the mathematical constant P(E).

As far as we can tell, the only even prime number is two.

So, \mathrm{E}={2,2}

\Rightarrow P \in=1 / 36
