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
