Expert's answer

a - even changes

b - unlikely

c - likely

d - certain

e - impossible

Explanation:

a) you get an odd number when you roll a normal dice. - Even chances (e)

We

have probability of existence this and opposite situations and we don't know

correlation of this probability

b) You get a number less than 6 when you roll

a normal dice - Unlikely (u)

The probability of existence this situation is

less than The probability of existence opposite situation

c) The front page

of a newspaper will contain the word “and”. - Likely (l)

The

probability of existence this situation is more than The probability of

existence opposite situation

d) Multiplying an odd by an even gives an even

number. - Certain (c)

The probability of this situation is 100%

e) “Add”

is a longer word than “Multiply”. - Impossible (i)

The probability of this

situation is 0%

b - unlikely

c - likely

d - certain
