Hi Suresh,

The Binomial distribution tends to a normal distribution when 'n' increases. The poisson distribution also tends to a normal distribution when 'lambda' increases. However, this is not true in the case of a Bernouli Distribution.

Hence, Bernouli Distribution is the answer..

Hope this helps..
