Hint: Let us first see what favorable event means.
Favorable event is an event of occurrence desired by an observer.
In our case it is getting 2 or 3 on the visible face of dice after rolling.
As we know probability of event can be calculated with the help of total outcomes and favorable outcomes. We can proceed to solve the given question.
$P(A) = \dfrac{{occurrence\,\,of\,A}}{{Total\,Events}}$

$\Pr obability = \dfrac{{Favorable\,Outcomes}}{{Total\,Outcomes}} \\ \Rightarrow \Pr obability = \dfrac{2}{6} \\ \Rightarrow \Pr obability = \dfrac{1}{3} \;$
Hence, the probability of getting 2 or 3 when dice is rolled is $\dfrac{1}{3}$
So, the correct answer is “$\dfrac{1}{3}$”.
