    The whole roll 2n+1 times, get k even numbered die is a binomial distribution but I wonder

    if the symmetry of the probability can't make this a bit easier.

    We can definitely use the fact that it is multiple choice though...

    If \(n=0\) then clearly getting an even face means you win, so the probability is \(1/2\).

    Which knocks out b and c

    When \(n=1\). what is the probability?

    You have three rolls, if you roll 1 or 3 evens, you win

    oops, that doesn't actually matter, when \(n=1\) then a) is still 1/2

    They need to be different.

    n=2 gives 7/10 for a, but d is still 1/2 so.... 5 rolls, what is the probability of odd even rolls
