GATE Electrical 2015 Set 2 | Question: 27
Two coins $R$ and $S$ are tossed. The $4$ joint events $H_{R}H_{S}, T_{R}T_{S}, H_{R}T_{S}, T_{R}H_{S}$ have probabilities $0.28, 0.18, 0.30, 0.24$, respectively, where $H$ represents head and $T$ represents tail. Which one of the ... is TRUE? The coin tosses are independent. $R$ is fair, $S$ is not. $S$ is fair, $R$ is not. The coin tosses are dependent.
