**A. 5/36**

B. 4/36

C. 1/12

D. 1/2

o find the probability of rolling a sum of 8 on two dice rolls, we need to enumerate all the possible outcomes where the sum is 8 and then divide it by the total number of outcomes when rolling two dice.

The possible combinations of rolls that result in a sum of 8 are:

**(2, 6), (3, 5), (4, 4), (5, 3), and (6, 2).**

Each die has 6 faces, so there are 6 possible outcomes for each roll. Thus, the total number of outcomes when rolling two dice is

**6×6=36**

Therefore, the probability of rolling a sum of 8 is the number of favorable outcomes (5) divided by the total number of outcomes (36).

So, the correct answer is A.

**5/36**

The correct answer to the question: **"If a dice is rolled twice then what is the probability that the sum of the number of dots shown is 8?"** is **"5/36"**.
