1. The width or size of the class interval 30-40 is:
a) 10
b) 30
c) 40
d) 70

Explanation: Width of class interval = upper class limit-lower class limit

= 40-30

= 10

2. If a coin is flipped in the air, what is the probability of getting a tail?
a) 0
b) ½
c) 1
d) 2

Explanation: A coin has two sides, Head and tails.

Hence, probability = Number of possible outcomes/Total number of outcomes

We know, Tail is present on one side of a coin and in total there could be two outcomes H&T

Hence, Probability = ½

3. A bag has 4 red balls and 4 green balls, what is the probability of getting a red ball randomly?
a) 1/4
b) 1/8
c) 1/2
d) 0

Explanation: Total number of balls in bag = 4+4 = 8

Total number of red balls = 4

Probability of getting a red ball = 4/8 = ½

4. If a die is thrown in air, the probability of getting even numbers is:
a) ½
b) ⅙
c) ⅓
d) ⅔

Explanation: A die has six sides each consisting numbers from 1 to 6.

Number of even numbers in die = 3 (2,4,6)

Total possible outcomes = 6

Probability = 3/6 = 1/2
