11/12

36 possible outcomes

P(11, that is either [5,6] or [6,5]) = 2/36.
P(12, that is [6,6]) = 1/12
hence P(11 or 12) = P(sum>= 11) = 3/36 = 1/12

P(sum<11) = 1 - P(sum>=11) = 1 - 1/12 = 11/12

2 )....

explanation P(Sum < 11) = 1-P(Sum >= 11)

P(Sum > = 11) = 3/36

Fav. outcome = 3
as it could be (5,6) (6,5) (6,6)

tot outcome = 36 (6 *6)
