Question

# Tossing a coin is ___ event

- Equally likely
- Unequally likely
- Certain
- random

Hint:

### In probability, an event is a set of outcomes of an experiment to which a probability is assigned.

## The correct answer is: Equally likely

### Here, we have to tell what kind of event is tossing a coin.

When a coin is tossed, outcomes are Head and Tail.

Total outcomes = 2

P ( Head ) = 1/2 , and P ( Tail) = 1/2

Since, both events have the same probability and any one event can happen at random.

Therefore, tossing a coin is a random event.

Hence, the correct option is (d)

A random event is an event in which any outcome of all the possible one can occur.
