1.

Select the term to complete the sentence.

A desired result when calculating a probability is called a _____ outcome.
 a. possible b. positive c. favourable

2.

Select the term to complete the sentence.

Two events that have no outcomes(s) in common, but account for all possible outcomes of an experiment are called _____ events.
 a. opposite c. dependent b. independent d. complementary

3.

Suppose you toss a coin, and then roll a standard six-sided die.  What is the probability of getting Tails and an odd number?
 a. c. 1 b. d.

4.

Suppose you toss a coin, and then roll a standard six-sided die.  What is the probability of not getting Tails or an odd number?

NOTE to Editor - In the manuscript for 12.3, Question 6 b) was replaced with P(anything except 3 and yellow).  If the intent is to use the concept of complementary events, using the answer found from Question 6 a) then I think that the wording should be change to say
P(anything except 3 OR yellow).
 a. c. 1 b. d.

5.

Suppose you roll the die and spin the spinner.
