### If you toss a die and it comes up with the number one 9 times in a row, what is the probability that it will come up with one on the next throw?

• A.

Two in three

• B.

One in two

• C.

One in six

• D.

C. One in six
Explanation
The probability of getting a specific number on a fair six-sided die is always 1 in 6, regardless of previous outcomes.

Therefore, even if the die has come up with the number one 9 times in a row, the probability of it coming up with one on the next throw remains 1 in 6.
