Answer:1/45

Step-by-step explanation:Probability of pulling a red marble is 2/10. If you do not replace the marble, then there are only 9 marbles left in the bag. Assuming you pulled a red marble the first time, this leaves only 1 red marble in the bag. So, the probability of pulling a red marble the second time is 1/9. The probability of pulling two red marbles is (2/10)(1/9) = 1/45
