Please only post your questions once. Repeating posts will not get a quicker response. In addition, it wastes our time looking over reposts that have already been answered in a another post. Thank you.

This answer was scored wrong, but I do not know why. If someone would kindly show me the error, I would appreciate it.
First choice probability: 5/20
Second choice probability: 6/19
Third choice probability: 9/18
Total Probability: (5/20)(5/19(9/18)=3/76
This answer is not featured above but the math seems correct. Each successive choice has fewer balls remaining, and the correct number of the desired balls for the next choice still remains in the bag for all the choices. The total probability is the product of the probability of each choice.

the answer is B. when you multiply you get (225/6840) simplifing this and you will get 5/152.

the answer Red then blue the red is D.
1 of 38 or 2.63% chance
5 red chances /20 balls *
9 blue /19 * 4 red balls left /18
= .25 X .47368 * .2222 = .0263
or 1/38

5/20*9/19*4/18 = 1/4*9/19*2/9 =
1/2*1/19 = 1/38
