First 10 positive integers = {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10}
Ways to choose 2 positive integers = \(10C_2\) = 45.
Only group of even numbers can give sum and product to be even.
Possible groups are, (2,4) (2,6) (2,8) (2,10) (4,6) (4,8) (4,10) (6,8) (6,10) (8,10) = 10 groups.

Probability = 10/45 = 2/9

B is the answer.
