Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, your method give the answer 3/7, which is clearly wrong; that's as if only one was picked, and completely ignores what happens if you pick another one first THEN cola; try again, or draw a tree!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The probability of picking one in two attempts isn't less than picking one in one attempt. Try again.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You either pick one first (3/7) or you pick one of the others first (4/7). If you pick it first (3/7) you can ignore that because whatever you pick next will make it true. For the others (4/7), you now have a 3/6 chance of picking cola. It's (3/7) * 1 + (4/7) * (3/6)
