Expert Answer:

Sample space refers to all possible outcomes.
A die is thrown  5 times repeatedly untill a 6 comes up - so, either a six can come up in the first trial or in the second trial or in the third trial or 4th or 5th
Sample space = { 6, (a,6) , (b,c,6), (d,e,f,6), (g,h,i,j,6)} where a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h, i, j can be any number between [1,5] (including both 1 and 5)
