A fair die is thrown once. The probability of even composite number is
(a) 0
(b) 1/3
(c) 3/4
(d) 1

Dear Student
In a single throw of a die, the possible outcomes =
{1,2,3,4,5,6}
The total number of possible outcomes = 6
Let E be the event of getting a composite even number.
Then, the favourable outcomes are 4 and 6.
Number of favourable outcomes = 2
∴ P(getting a composite even number)
= Favourable outcomes / Total number of outcomes
= 2/6 
= 1/ 3 
Hence, option (b) is correct.
Regards
