Solution

## The correct option is B 1235A bag contains 15 red, 8 blue and several green marbles. A marble is selected at random. The probability of drawing a blue marble is 15. 5 green marbles are now taken out from the bag. If a marble is now drawn at random,The green marble are 8P(E)−(15+8)=40−23=17if 5 marbles are removed green marbles are =17−5=12 and total marbles 40-5=35 the probability of drawing a green marbleProbability is P(E)=1235  Suggest Corrections  0      Similar questions  Related Videos   Theoretical Probability
