    The probability of picking a marble of any color is 100%. The probability of picking a red marble is 10%. The probability of picking a yellow one is 60%. 100% - 10% - 60% = ? That is the probability of picking an orange one. If that probability is between 50% and 100% it is likely. If that probability is between 0% and 50%, it is unlikely.
