## Question:

Please match the following items, which are all related with rolling a die, to their definition:

1-Rolling a die

2-"getting a 6"

3-{1,2,3,4,5,6}

4-"Observe an even number"

The options are

A. An event

B. An outcome

C. Sample space

D. An experiment

## EVENT:

The events can be categorized into three types- one is independent (one event does not get affected by the happening of another event); dependent (one event does get affected by the happening of another event); and mutually exclusive (Both the events cannot appear at the same time).

## Answer and Explanation:

An experiment can be considered as the activity in which the outcomes related to an event cannot be obtained surety. Therefore, **rolling a die** is an example of an experiment as it is not certain that what will be outcome. Hence, the item **1** matched with an option **D**.

Outcome can be defined as the end result of a certain experiment. So, if the single die is rolled and the result turns out to be 6, then **getting a 6** considered as an outcome. Hence, the item **2** matched with an option **B**.

Sample space can be defined as the sorted list of all the possible cases in probability experiment. If the single die is rolled, then the sample space will be {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}. Hence, the item **3** matched with an option **C**.

An event may consist one or more than one possible cases or outcomes in an experiment. If the single die is rolled, then observing an even number like {2, 4, 6} considered as an event. Hence, the item **4** matched with an option **A**.
