A. 0.167

B. 0.250

C. 0.333

D. 0.375

E. 0.500


A six-sided die has the following features:
1) 2,4, and 6- Even faces
2) 1,3, and 5- Odd faces

We require the probability of exactly one even number of outcome(or face) out of 3 rolls.
The no of outcomes upon rolling a six-sided die 3 times=2*2*2=8=sample space
Exactly one even outcome results in the the following instances:
1) 2-2-2; occurs once
2) 4-4-4; occurs once
3) 6-6-6; occurs once
So, the total no of favorable outcomes=3

So, the required probability=\(\frac{3}{8}=0.375\)
Ans. (D)
