    Answer:

    A 50% chance.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    After subtracting 1 yellow sock and 1 blue sock, there are 11 blue and 11 yellow socks left.

    So a 22 sock total.

    The probability of picking another blue sock on the third try is the ratio of blue socks to total socks:

    11/22 = 1/2=50%
