1/4 is answer of this question

Dice = {1,2,3,4,5,6}
number of throw =2 means
odd no in dice={1,3,5}
probablity for first throw = n(e)/n(s)=3/6=1/2
probablity for second throw = n(e)/n(s)=3/6=1/2
gd
then select my answer as best one
but i did nt post the question

Getting odd number in one throw or toss:    probability = 3/ 6 = 1/2
probability of getting even number:  1/2
Let n be the number of  odd numbers obtained when two dice are thrown  or one die is thrown tiwice.

probability of getting zero odd numbers
= P(even number AND even number in 2nd throw)
P( n = 0)    = 1/2 * 1/2 = 1/4

Probability of getting one odd number = P(n = 1)
= P (Odd number AND even number) + P(even number AND odd number)
= 1/2 * 1/2 + 1/2 * 1/2
P(n = 1) = 1/2

Probability of getting two odd numbers =
P( n = 2) =  P( odd number AND odd number)
=  1/2 * 1/2 = 1/4

So the distribution is:

P(0) = 1/4        P(1) = 1/2      P(2) = 1/4
