Exercise 6 - Towards academic reading
A coin has two sides. If you put the coin on a table with one side up, then you can see only that side of the coin and not the other. Seeing one side of the coin excludes the possibility that you can see the other side at the same time.

Because you can only see one side of a coin at any time, the two possibilities are called “mutually exclusive”.

Imagine that you are playing a card game with only one pack of cards. If you hold a specific card, this excludes the possibility of someone else holding the same card.

Now see if you can answer the question below.
Look at the four cards in the picture. Two of the cards are kings (K) and 2 of the cards are aces (A). Which answer below shows two possibilities which are mutually exclusive if two people are playing with these 4 cards?
