Answer: (3) 11/36

Explanation:-
Let A = event of getting a multiple of 2 on one die and a multiple of 3 on the other dice.
The events of a multiple of 2 on one die and a multiple of 3 on the other die will be A = [(2, 3), (2, 6), (3, 2), (3, 4), (3, 6), (4, 3), (4, 6), (6, 2), (6, 3), (6, 4), (6, 6)] = 11

Therefore, probability of getting ‘a multiple of 2 on one die and a multiple of 3 on the other dice’
Then, P (A) = Number of favourable outcomes/Total number of possible outcome

= 11/36

Hence, the answer is (3) 11/36.
