# Refer to question 6 above, state true of false: (give reason for your answer)

(i) A and B are mutually exclusive

(ii) A and B are mutually exclusive and exhaustive

(iii) A= B'

(iv) A and C are mutually exclusive

(v) A and B' are mutually exclusive

(vi) A', B', C are mutually exclusive and exhaustive.

**Solution:**

When two dice are thrown, the sample space is given by

S = {(x, y) : x, y ∈ {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} }

Hence,

{(1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (1, 4), (1, 5), (1, 6)

(2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3), (2, 4), (2, 5), (2, 6)

S = (3, 1), (3, 2), (3, 3), (3, 4), (3, 5), (3, 6)

(4, 1), (4, 2), (4, 3), (4, 4), (4, 5), (4, 6)

(5, 1), (5, 2), (5, 3), (5, 4), (5, 5), (5, 6)

(6, 1), (6, 2), (6, 3), (6, 4), (6, 5), (6, 6)}

Accordingly,

{(2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3), (2, 4), (2, 5), (2, 6)

A = (4, 1), (4, 2), (4, 3), (4, 4), (4, 5), (4, 6),

(6, 1), (6, 2), (6, 3), (6, 4), (6, 5), (6, 6)}

{(1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (1, 4), (1, 5), (1, 6)

B = (3, 1), (3, 2), (3, 3), (3, 4), (3, 5), (3, 6),

(5, 1), (5, 2), (5, 3), (5, 4), (5, 5), (5, 6)}

C = {(1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (1, 4), (1, 5), (2, 1)

(2, 2), (2, 3), (3, 1), (3, 2), (4, 1)}

**(i) **It is observed that A ∩ B = Φ

Therefore, A and B are mutually exclusive.

Thus, the given statement is **true**.

**(ii) **It is observed that A ∩ B = Φ and A υ B = S

Therefore, A and B are mutually exclusive and exhaustive.

Thus, the given statement is **true**.

**(iii) **It is observed that

{(2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3), (2, 4), (2, 5), (2, 6)

A = (4, 1), (4, 2), (4, 3), (4, 4), (4, 5), (4, 6),

(6, 1), (6, 2), (6, 3), (6, 4), (6, 5), (6, 6)}

and

{(2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3), (2, 4), (2, 5), (2, 6)

B' = S - B = (4, 1), (4, 2), (4, 3), (4, 4), (4, 5), (4, 6),

(6, 1), (6, 2), (6, 3), (6, 4), (6, 5), (6, 6)}

So A = B'.

Thus, the given statement is **true**.

**(iv) **It is observed that

A ∩ C = {(2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3), (4, 1)} ≠ Φ

Therefore, A and C are not mutually exclusive.

Thus, the given statement is **false**.

**(v) **It is observed that A ∩ B' = A ∩ A = A

Therefore, A ∩ B' ≠ Φ; A and B' are not mutually exclusive.

Thus, the given statement is **false**.

**(vi) **It is observed that A' υ B' υ C = S

However,

B' ∩ C = {(2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3), (4, 1)} ≠ Φ

Therefore, events A', B', and C are not mutually exclusive and exhaustive.

Thus, the given statement is **false**
