Question 6 Two different coins are tossed simultaneously. The probability of getting at least one head is: (a) 1/4 (b) 1/8 (c) 3/4 (d) 7/8 When 2 coins are tossed Possible outcomes = HH, TH, HT, TT Now, Outcomes with atleast with 1 head = HH, HT, TH Thus, P(getting atleast 1 head) = (𝑁𝑢𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝑜𝑢𝑡𝑐𝑜𝑚𝑒𝑠 𝑤𝑖𝑡ℎ 𝑎𝑡𝑙𝑒𝑎𝑠𝑡 1 ℎ𝑒𝑎𝑑)/(𝑇𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑙 𝑛𝑢𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝑜𝑢𝑡𝑐𝑜𝑚𝑒𝑠) = 𝟑/𝟒 So, the correct answer is (C)
