To have equal number of black and white balls, the yellow urn must have 5 black and 5 white balls. So the balls we select out of the green urn must be both white.
Probability (first ball is white) = 5/10
Probability(second ball is white) = 4/9
Probability (both balls are white) = (5/10)*(4/9) = 2/9
