The only fair game outlined here would be: b. Drawing a card from a standard deck of 52 cards. You win if you draw a Queen In this case, a standard deck of 52 cards is being used, and there are four Queens in the deck. So, according to probability, you have a 4 in 52, or 1 in 13 chance of drawing a Queen, making this game fair. In all other options, the equipment being used (the coin or the dice) is not standard, which results in skewed probabilities.
