1. You just have to imagine the scenario that will cause her to take out the most jelly beans.

She could pick all the red ones, pick all the green ones, and then finally pick a blue one. You do the addition.

2. Oops... the MINIMUM. Sorry about that. (The above was for the maximum.)

She could pick a red, green, and blue right off the bat. Do the addition.
