A spinner as shown in the figure selects a number
A spinner as shown in the figure selects a number from the set. If we select the outcomes as atomic outcomes {ξ1 = 1, ξ2 = 2 .ξ3 = 3, ξ4 = 4} and use the classical approach to assigning probabilities, then we would conclude that the spinner selects all four numbers each with equal probability, 1/ 4. Show how to describe this experiment in terms of more fundamental outcomes so that the classical approach leads to a more reasonable probability assignment.
