basic probability, no more
this question requires applying a full probability formula.

It's not a terribly difficult question, however.

GROUP 1: P OF GIRL .75
GROUP 2: P OF GIRL .50
GROUP 3: P OF GIRL .33 (APPX)

GBB: .75*.5*.67 .25125
BGB: .25*.5*.67 .08375
BBG: .25*.5*.33 .04125
---------
.37625
