  • three ball drawn from 3O,3G,2B balls without replacement
  • we can get 2 Green and 1Blue in the following ways
  • (G G B) (G B G) (B G G)
p(G G B) =\(\frac{3}{8}\)X\(\frac{2}{7}\)X\(\frac{2}{6}\)
p(G B G)=\(\frac{3}{8}\)X\(\frac{2}{7}\)X\(\frac{2}{6}\)
p(B G G )=\(\frac{2}{8}\)X\(\frac{3}{7}\)X\(\frac{2}{6}\)
p(getting 2Green and 1 Blue)
=\(\frac{9}{84}\)=\(\frac{3}{28}\)      ,A, option is correct
