    Probability quantifies as a number between 0 and 1,

    where, loosely speaking,

    0 indicates impossibility and 1 indicates certainty.

    The values which cannot be​ probabilities:

    A.1.29

    B.root of 2

    E.5/3

    and

    F.-0.46

    The only ones that cannot are -0.46 and 5/3.
