QHE Question:

Imagine four bags of red and green balls such that when you choose a ball at random;

P(choose red from Bag A) > P(choose red from Bag C) and

P(choose red from Bag B) > P(choose red from Bag D)

You combine the contents of Bag A and Bag B into Bag E and those of Bag C and Bag D into Bag F.

Would you expect that;

(A) P(choose a red from Bag E) < P(choose a red from Bag F)

(B) P(choose a red from Bag E) > P(choose a red from Bag F)

(C) P(choose a red from Bag E) = P(choose a red from Bag F)
