Answer : 3 2/21 Explanation : Answer: C) 2/21 Explanation: Given that there are three blue marbles, four red marbles, six green marbles and two yellow marbles. Probability that both marbles are blue = ³C₂/¹⁵C₂ = (3 x 2)/(15 x 14) = 1/35Probability that both are yellow = ²C₂/¹⁵C₂ = (2 x 1)/(15 x 14) = 1/105Probability that one blue and other is yellow = (³C₁ x ²C₁)/¹⁵C₂ = (2 x 3 x 2)/(15 x 14) = 2/35 Required probability = 1/35 1/105 2/35 = 3/35 1/105 = 1/35(3 1/3) = 10/(3 x 35) = 2/21
