Im not sure about this but 

Probability of picking a first red marble is 3/11 since there are 3 red marbles in a total of 11 marbles.

 

Probability of picking a second red (without replacement) is 2/10 (or 1/5) since there are 2 red marbles left in a total of 10 marbles left

 

Probability of the 2 events happening in succession is (3/11 * 2/10) * 100 = 5.5%
