The probability of getting a multiple of $$2$$ when a dice is rolled is （ ）
A. $$\frac {1}{6}$$
B. $$\frac {1}{3}$$
C. $$\frac {1}{2}$$
D. $$\frac {2}{3}$$

C
4.6
4.6

## Solution

The total outcomes of dice are $$1,2,3,4,5,6$$.
And, $$2,4$$ and $$6$$ are multiple of $$2$$.
So, favourable cases $$=3$$.
$$\therefore$$ $$\text{Probability}=\frac{\text{Number}\ \text{of}\ \text{favourable}\ \text{cases}}{\text{Total}\ \text{cases}}$$
$$=\frac{3}{6}$$
$$=\frac{1}{2}$$
Hence, option $$(C)$$ is correct.
