    I would go with C. sense there are 25 marbles it can't be A. or D. And it would make sense to go with C. because there are 9 yellow marbles.

    It's D! Odds is different than probability

    Odds = Odds of an event = number of ways the event can occur : number of ways it can't occur In other words - successes : failures

    No problem, @gaby565 It's a confusing thing odds vs probability. You'd hope they'd be the same.
