See explanation.
Explanation:
A possible result in a probability experiment is an elementary event.
The set of elementsry events is defined sepparately for every experiment.
Example 1
If we toss a coin, the experiment can end with one of 2 results: heads or tails, so this experiment has 2 elementary events.
Example 2
If we randomly draw a card from a deck of playing cards, the set of elementary events has

#(A,H)#  ace of hearts is drawn, 
#(2,S)#  two of spades is drawn, 
#(3,D)#  three of diamonds is drawn,
and so on.
