Let p 1 be the probability that you observe exactly 10 heads and 10 tails if you toss the coin 20 times. Let p 2 be the probability that you observe exactly 50 heads and 50 tails if you toss the coin 100 times. A p 1 is larger than p 2 B p 1 is smaller than p 2 C p 1 and p 2 are equal A B C 0.0 0.2 0.4 0.6 0.8
