Probably.

It is 1/6.

When rolling one die, the probability of getting a 4 is 1 in 6, or 0.1667. If two dice are rolled, you get two unrelated chances of rolling at least one 4, so the probability is 2 in 6, or 0.3333.

These are independent one has no bearing on the other

You can't get 14 with two regular six-sided dice ! The highest you can get with one throw is 12.

If they are normal dice, the probability is 0.

It is 15/36 = 5/12

It is 5 over 6.

Assuming these are regular dice, the probability is 1.

The probability of rolling 12 with 2 dice is 1 in 36. The probability of not rolling 12 with 2 dice is 35 in 36.

The probability is 35/36.

The probability is 1, if the dice are rolled often enough.

Probably.

The probability is 8/36 or 2/9
