22. A coin is tossed until a head appears or until the coin has been tossed five times. If a head does not occur on the first two tosses, then the probability that the coin will be tossed 5 times is :
(a) 1/2 (b) 3/5 (c) 1/4 (d) 1/3
Answer
Answer : (c)
Explanation
Explanation : No answer description available for this question. Let us discuss.
Probability » Exercise - 137. In order to get atleast once a head with probability ≥0.9, the number of times a coin needs to be tossed, is : (a) 3 (b) 4 (c) 5 (d) none of these
Probability » Exercise - 17. A coin is tossed and a dice is rolled . The probability that the coin shows the head and the dice shows 6 is : (a) 1/8 (b) 1/12 (c) 1/2 (d) 1
Probability » Exercise - 114. If A & B are two mutually exclusive events, then P (A + B) = (a) P (A) + P (B) - P (AB) (b) P (A) - P (B) (c) P (A) + P (B) (d) P (A) + P (B) + P (AB)
Probability » Exercise - 110. A & B toss a coin alternatively, the first to show a head being the winner. If A starts the game, the chance of his winning is : (a) 5/8 (b) 1/2 (c) 1/3 (d) 2/3
Probability » Exercise - 115. The probability of happening atleast one of the events A & B is 0.6. If the events A & B happens simultaneously with the probability 0.2, then (a) 0.4 (b) 0.8 (c) 1.2 (d) none of these
