The probability is 1/2 because the second outcome has no affect on the first outcome.

An outcome is what actually happens, while the probability of that outcome is how likely that particular thing is to happen. Say I was flipping a coin. The probability of the outcome of heads is 1/2 because there are 2 possible outcomes and heads is only 1 of them. Then when I flip the coin, it lands on tails. The outcome is tails.

If the coin is fair, the probability is 1/4.

The answer is 1/2 , assuming the coin is fair.

It is either heads or tails.

The probability of flipping Heads on a coin is 1 - a certainty - if the coin is flipped often enough. On a single toss of a fair coin the probability is 1/2.

If it is a fir coin, the probability is (1/2)10 = 1/1024.

It is either heads or tails.

1 heads in a row

1/6000

Each toss outcome has a probability of 1/2; picture copied from the related link. The related link does a good job explaining tree diagrams and probabilities.

We have no way of knowing the probability of any given person flipping any given coin at any given time. But for any two flips of an honest coin, the probability that both are tails is 25% . (1/4, or 3 to 1 against)
