Solution :-

Let us assume that 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 are the possible outcomes when the die is thrown.

As per the condition given in the question, a die is thrown repeatedly until a six comes up.

If six may come up for the first throw or six may come up on second throw this process will goes continuously until the six comes.

The sample space when 6 comes on very first throw S1 = {6}

The sample space when 6 comes on second throw S2 = {(1,6), (2,6), (3,6), (4,6), (5,6)}

This event can go on for infinite times.

So, the sample space is infinitely defined

S = {(6), (1,6), (2,6), (3,6), (4,6), (5,6), (1,1,6), (1,2,6)……}
