Megan tells her friends that if she spins the arrow shown, it is a fact that the arrow will land on the purple section. Is she right?
No, because the arrow will land on a green section 50% of the time and a purple section 50% of the time.
Yes, because it is a fact that the arrow will land on the largest area, which is the purple section.
No, because although it is probable the arrow will land in the purple section, it is not fact.
