An unbiased coin is tossed six times in a row and four different such trials are conducted. One trial implies six tosses of the coin. If $\mathrm{H}$ stands for head and T stands for tail, the following are the observations from the four trials:

(1) HTHTHT (2) TTHHHT

(3) HTTHHT (4) HHHT

Which statement describing the last two coin tosses of the fourth trial has the highest probability of being correct?

(A) Two T will occur.

(B) One $\mathrm{H}$ and one $\mathrm{T}$ will occur.

(C) Two $\mathrm{H}$ will occur.

(D) One $\mathrm{H}$ will be followed by one $\mathrm{T}$.
