Game 1: Roll both dice, and if they both produce even numbers, you win. Game 2: Roll both dice, and if they both produce odd numbers, you win. A higher possibility of winning the game exists for the player who chooses Game 1.

Correct! Wrong!

There is a 2 out of 6 chance that an odd number will appear on Dice A and a 4 out of 6 chance that an odd number will appear on Dice B if Game 2 is chosen. Therefore, regardless of the game chosen, a person has the same chance of winning.
