4. A die and a coin are thrown simultaneously.
5. A mug falls down from the table. (luckily, an empty one).
6. From a pack of 52 cards, we draw 2.
7. A pack of six numbered cards is shuffled and the numbers are revealed one by one.
8. We play a series of chess games. The winner is the one who first scores three points, where one point is obtained for a single win and draws do not come.
9. We keep throwing a coin until it lands heads up.
10. The temperature outdoors is measured.
11. How long shall we wait for a bus at a stop?
12. How many days does a letter posted in Mumbai take to reach Bangalore?
