A jar contains 10 red marbles and 6 black marbles. If three marbles are pulled from the jar one after another without replacing them back into the jar, what is the probability there will be at least one red marble among them?

A . 1/28

B. 15/128

C. 15/56

D. 113/128

E. 27/28


Probability of getting at least 1 red marble = 1 - Probability of getting 0 red marbles (or all 3 black marbles)
= \(1 - \frac{6}{16}*\frac{5}{15}*\frac{4}{14}\)
= \(1 - \frac{1}{28}\)
= \(\frac{27}{28}\)

IMO Option E
