So you get a free throw when you are fouled for example when you are shooting and some1 hits ur arm, but also for other reasons

you are allowed 2 shots for when some1 hits ur arm & other times, and allowed only 1 shot for other reasons (the referee will decide how many shots)

each shot you make only gives you 1 point

i hope i helped :)

i <3 bball :P
