    Solution:

    Given that a die is rolled once.
    We know that the probability is given as the ratio of the number of favorable outcomes with the total number of possible outcomes.
    P(E)=Number of favourable outcomes n(E)Total possible outcomes n(S)
    As a die is rolled once.
     The total possible outcome, n(S)=6
    Let E be the event of getting a number lying between 2 and 6. Then,
    E={3,4,5}
    n(E)=3
    The probability of the event E is,
    P(E)=Number of favourable outcomes n(E)Total number of outcomes n(S)
    P(E)=36
    P(E)=12 Thus, the probability a number lying between 2 and 6 is 12.
    Therefore, the given statement is true.
    Hence, option 1 is correct.
