1. The probability that both balls drawn have the same color if the first ball is replaced before the second is drawn will be 0.5165 that is option E.

### What is probability?

The area of mathematics known as probability explores potential outcomes of events as well as their relative probabilities and distributions. Simply put, probability is the likelihood that something will occur. When we don’t know how an event will turn out, we might discuss the likelihood or likelihood of several outcomes. Statistics is the study of occurrences that follow a probability distribution.
Here,
=9/22*9/22+13/22*13/22
=0.5165
If the first ball is replaced before the second is drawn, chance that both balls drawn will be the same color is 0.5165.
