(a) Mutually exclusive?

(b) Simple?

(c) Compound?

Question 5

(b) 3 events which are mutually exhaustive and exclusive.

(c) 2 events, which are not mutually exclusive.

(d) 2 events which are mutually exclusive but not exhaustive.

(e) 3 events which are mutually exclusive but not exhaustive.

Question 6

An experiment consists of throwing up of a dice and includes events A,B and C:

B = an odd number on throwing of the first die

C = sum of numbers on the dice will less than equals to 5.

(a) A     (b) not B       (c) A or B     (d) A and B

(e) A but not C     (f) B or C     (g) B or C    (h) ABC
