(C) 1/6

(E) 2/3


P(rains on Monday AND rains on Tuesday) = P(rains on Monday) x P(rains on Tuesday)
= 1/6 x 1/6
= 1/36

Answer: A

Probability of raining one day =1/6
p(a and b) = p(a) *p(b)
Since these are independent events
hence probability of raining on monday and tuesday = 1/6*1/6= 1/36
answer a
