take three events
A={NO RED BALL}
B={NO BLUE BALL}
C={NO WHITE BALL}
SO WE NEED TO FIND P{AUBUC}=?SO P(A)=30C10/90C10 P(B) AND P(C) WILL BE SAME
NOW P(A∩B)=60C10/90C10 P(B∩c) and p(A∩C) WIL BE SAMENOW P(A∩B∩C)=0 {CANT HAPPEN}
SO P(AUBUC}=3*{30C1060C10}/90C10

but where is the case where 2 colors will be missing?
what i thought was tht first there are 90c10 ways in total now
case1draw 10 balls from the 30 red and 30 white balls tht means 60c10
cse 2 10 balls drawn frm 30 white and 30 blue balls tht means 60c10
case310 balls frm 30 red and 30 blue tht emans 60c10
now in all these 3 cases will also involve the cases where only red ,blue or white balss are drawn therefore to avoid double counting we subtract 3*30c10
threfore my answer becomes
3(60c1030c10)/90c10

just one correction p(a)=60c10/90c10
and p(a∩b)=30c10/90c10so p(aubuc)=3*{60C1030C10}/90C10
sorry had misplaced the values as i was sleepy
and p(aubuc) covers the possibility of two balls not being selected.

Shruti, you have only considered the case where exactly one colour is excluded. You haven’t accounted for the case where 2 colours are excluded

But sir what i have done is tht first when i said tht we draw 10 balls frm 30 white and 30 blue balls so this sample will automatically include the case where either only 10 white balls are drwan or10 blue balls are drwan .so this does not becomes the case of exactly one color missing
