mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive (mece)
لا يجمع بين احتمالين ويؤدي إلى نتيجة


Explanation:
المصطلح يشير إلى إحدى قواعد علم الإحصاء، ويمكن تقسيمه إلى جزئين:
1- mutually exclusive: يعني وجود احتمالين لا يمكن الجمع بينهما (مثل رمي العملة المعدنية وظهور أحد وجهيها فقط).
2- collectively exhaustive: يعني وجود عدة احتمالات ولكن أحدها سيحدث بالتأكيد (عند رمي حجر النرد سيؤدي إلى استقراره على أحد أوجهه الستة).

Explanation:
I agree, and commend, linguaquality for the given explanations. There is a subtlety to the second term (collectively exhaustive) it means that (in the case of the dice example) the collection or set of {1,2,3,4,5,6} give in their "total" the whole "Sample Space" or in layman terms the whole possible combinations. So it's not that "one of them" would happen (which could be true for {1,2,3} it's that "none outside them" would happen.
