### Solution:

Given,

Letbe the minimum number of shots required. As

per given condition, we have

$1{-}^{n}{C}_{0}\left(p{\right)}^{0}\left(q{\right)}^{n}>\frac{5}{6}⇒1-1{\left(\frac{1}{3}\right)}^{0}{\left(\frac{2}{3}\right)}^{n}>\frac{5}{6}⇒\frac{1}{6}>{\left(\frac{2}{3}\right)}^{n}$

$⇒0.1666>{\left(\frac{2}{3}\right)}^{n}$ ,which is possible only when we take

$n=5,6,\dots$

$\therefore$ Minimum value of $n$=5  Register to Get Free Mock Test and Study Material
