Not Independent.....the probability of selecting a green apple on the second draw depends upon the first draw

Independent  .....the second outcome does not depend upon the first

Independent.....one event has no effect upon the other

The last three will be independent if   P(A I B)   = P(A)

So......the first one is Not independent

Second one  .....Independent

Third one......Not independent   Dec 21, 2017
