I just realised that is not probability that is asked.
So no of cases I think with yellow or green 10 out of the total 12.

Re: PS - Selecting balls [#permalink] New post 24 Nov 2005, 07:58
total = 4c2=6
not either yello or green = RB= 1
so the total possibilities = 6-1= 5, (YG is also considered the possibile case).

4P2= 12 possible ways to select the balls (unless they are replaced after removal)

only 2 constraints exist: red/blue or blue/red

12-2= 10 ways

Or in terms of probability: 10/12--->5/6
