  1. Answer:

    52

    Step-by-step explanation:

    For the occurrence of heads, there will be 26 cards which can be chosen from clubs and spades suits.

    For the occurrence of tails, there will be 26 cards which can be chosen from hearts and diamonds suits.

    Therefore the size of the sample space = 26+26=52.
