2. If 2 apples are randomly selected from carton 1, find the probability that both are good.

Option 1: randomly choose a box and then choose 2 apples from that box.
Option 2: randomly choose 1 apple from each box
Which option will you take in order to increase your chances of getting 2 good apples? Validate your choice.
