A peculiar die has the following properties: on any roll the probability of rolling either a 2, a 3, or a 5 is 1/2, just as it is with an ordinary die. Moreover, the probability of rolling either a 5, a 6, or a 4 is again 1/2. However, the probability of rolling a 5 is 3/16, not 1/6 as one would expect of an ordinary fair die.

From what you know about this peculiar die, compute

A) the probability of rolling either a 2, a 3, or a 1;

B) the probability of rolling anything but a 1.
