3Important point about eventsIf the event A, B, C covers the entire possible outcome in the experiment. Then,
4Impossible eventThe probability of an event (U) which is impossible to event occur is O. Such an event is called an impossible event P (U) = O
5Sure, or certain eventThe probability of an event (X) which is sure (or certain) event to occur is 1. Such an event is called a sure event or a certain event

P (X) = 1

6Probability of any eventProbability of any event can be as
