# What events cannot occur at the same time?

Probability defines the likelihood of occurrence of an event.

## Answer: Mutually Exclusive events do not occur at the same time.

Let's understand the concept

**Explanation:**

According to statistics and probability, mutually exclusive events are those events that cannot occur simultaneously. For example, a coin tossed can either produce heads or tails, but not both simultaneously.

Below is the diagram shown for Event A and Event B which are mutually exclusive

For two mutually exclusive events, A and B, we can thus say that A ∩ B = 0.
