    probability of not drawing a green counter = probability of drawing blue counters + pink counters

    so 1 is actually the sum of all probability (in case u need to write it down .... probability of blue + prob. of pink + prob. of green)

    \[probability \left( pink \right)+prob.\left( blue \right)+prob.\left( green \right)=your answer\]
