There are 36 possible outcomes while throwing 2 dices.

Probability of getting a sum of 2: There is only one otcome where we will get a sum 2, that is when 1 comes in both dice (1+1)
So the probability of getting a sum of 2 is 1/36.

Probability of getting a sum of 7: Six out of the 36 possibilities we will get a sum of 7
1+6=7
6+1=7
2+5=7
5+2=7
3+4=7
4+3=7

So the probability of getting a 7 is 6/36 or 1/6.
