Those elements that are not in Set A are called the complement of A. Answer: True Type: Concept Difficulty: Easy 3. The set of all basic outcomes of an experiment is called the union of the set. Answer: False Type: Concept Difficulty: Easy 4. In the experiment of tossing a fair die once, the sample space includes six events. Answer: True Type: Concept Difficulty: Easy 5. The probability of event A is defined as the number of ways event A can occur, divided by the number of outcomes possible in the experiment. Answer: True Type: Concept Difficulty: Easy 6. In the experiment consisting of drawing one card at random from a standard deck of 52 cards, the sample space for the event of drawing a seven consists of 2 outcomes. Answer: False Type: Concept Difficulty: Easy 7. The probability of drawing a seven, from a standard deck of 52 cards, is 1/4. Answer: False Type: Computation Difficulty: Easy 8. If event A consists of the event of drawing a red card from a standard deck of 52 cards, then the complement of event A is the event of drawing a black card from this deck.
