(ii)Random Experiment: A random experiment is a repetitive process which may result in any one of the possible outcomes of the experiment OR:

(iii)Sample space: The sample space of a random experiment is the set containing all the possible outcomes of the experiment OR:

Sample space is all the possible outcomes of a trial in an experiment usually denoted by S.

(iv)The number of the points in a sample space n(s), and in an event, E is n(E).

EVALUATION
