What is the probability of flipping a fair coin three times and the coin landing on heads on exactly one flip?

A. 1/8
B. 1/4
C. 3/8
D. 1/2
E. 3/4


No. of possible outcome of flipping of Coin = 2*2*2 = 8 (Each flip can be either H or T)
No. of events in which there will be H in exactly one flip = HTT, THT, TTH = 3

So, probability = 3/8

Answer C
