The answer is going to be Answer D but it does mean 1/12 Explanation: When you roll a pair of dice there are 6 * 6 = 36 possible outcomes 11,12,13,14,15,16 21,22,23,24,25,26 31,32,33,34,35,36 41,42,43,44,45,46 51,52,53,54,55,56 61,62,63,64,65,66
Where the first digit is the score on the white die and the second digit the score on the red die
Each contestant has just THREE of these 36 permutations (23,56 and 61 for example)
Therefore his probability of winning is 3/36 = 1/12
