1 Answer

Given :
A die is rolled initially
If even number occurs on the die,a coin is tossed once
If odd number occurs on the die,a coin is tossed twice.
Therefore,the sample space can be written as
$S=\left\{\begin{array}{1 1}1HH,1HT,1TH,1TT,2H,2T,\\3HH,3HT,3TH,3TT,4H,4T,\\5HH,5HT,5TH,5TT,6H,6T\end{array}\right\}$
