The probabilities of colors of each pill are independent.
Let m[n] = C, be the event that the [n]th pill is a color (C). eg: P(m1=Blue) = 0.12
(1)
P(m1=Blue and m2=Blue) = P(m1=Blue) P(m2=Blue)
(2)
P(m1<>Red and m2<>Red) =
(1P(m1=Red))(1P(m2=Red))
(3)
P(m1=Red or m2=Red) = P(m1=Red) + P(m2=Red)  P(m1=Red) P(m2=Red)
