sample set :
throwing die can result 6 sample space i.e { 1,2,3,4,5,6}

spinner can result 3 results : (2,5,7}

hence total possible outcomes are 6 x 3 = 18  (Answer a)

Now for willing $5 , sum  required is 6 or 8 ... possible ways are (1,5) (4,2) (1,7) (3,5) (6,2)   total : 5 ways

$ 20 for sum of 11  : can be achieved by  (4,7) (6,5)   Total 2 ways

Expected value of winning, C = 5/18+ 2/18 =7/18  (Answer B)
