Answer : 1 35/36 Explanation : Answer: A) 35/36 Explanation: When two dice are thrown simultaneously, the probability is n(S) = 6x6 = 36Required, the sum of the two numbers that turn up is less than 12That can be done as n(E)= { (1,1), (1,2), (1,3), (1,4), (1,5), (1,6)(2,1), (2,2), (2,3), (2,4), (2,5), (2,6)(3,1), (3,2), (3,3), (3,4), (3,5), (3,6)(4,1), (4,2), (4,3), (4,4), (4,5), (4,6)(5,1), (5,2), (5,3), (5,4), (5,5), (5,6)(6,1), (6,2), (6,3), (6,4), (6,5) }= 35Hence, required probability = n(E)/n(S) = 35/36.
