I think this would just be the same as picking one ball out of the group of five.

Since there are two red balls and a total of five balls, then the asnwer would be 2/5.

Does anyone think that the answer is more complicated than this?

Alternately, There must be AT LEAST one Red ball ..
Probability that no RED ball is selected = 3/5
so probability at least one Red ball is selected = 1 - 3/5 = 2/5
