# When a die is thrown, the probability of getting an odd number less than 3 is

a. 1/6

b. 1/3

c. 1/2

d. 0

**Solution:**

A die has the shape of a cube with six faces

Each face is marked as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 dots

We know that

Odd number is the number which is not divisible by 2

Odd numbers = 3 {1, 3, 5}

Odd numbers less than 3 = 1 {1}

Total outcome = 6 {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

So the probability of getting an odd number which is less than 3 = Number of favourable outcomes/ Total outcomes

Substituting the values

= 1/6

Therefore, the probability of getting an odd number less than 3 is 1/6.
