Consider the following basic Probability Example Questions.

**1.** A fair dice is rolled. What is the probability of getting the number four?

**Solution**

Here, favorable events = 1 (that is 4), and total events = 6

So, , and

Using probability formula

**2.** A fair dice is rolled. What is the probability of getting an even number?

**Solution**

Here, favorable events = 3 (that are 2, 4, 6), and total events = 6

So, , and

Using probability formula

**3.** A card is drawn from a pack of 52 cards. What is the probability that the card is a queen?

**Solution**
