-2, -1, 0, 0, 1, 2

 

We have 6C3  =  20 possible sets of outcomes  [order doesn't matter ]

 

(-2, -1, 0)  (-2, -1, 0) (-2, - 1, 1) ( -2, - 1, 2)

(-2, 0, 0) (-2, 0, 1) (-2, 0, 2)

(-2, 0,1) (-2, 0, 2)

(-2,1,2)

(-1,0,0)  (-1, 0, 1) (-1, 0,2)

(-1,0, 1) (-1, 0, 2)

(-1,1,2)

(0,0,1) (0, 0, 2)

(0, 1, 2)

(0, 1, 2)

 

The probability  is    4 outcomes / 20  outcomes =    1 / 5
