#### Solution

$\text{ Number of green sectors in the wheel }= 3$
$\text{ Number of blue sectors in the wheel }= 1$
$\text{ Number of red sectors in the wheel } = 1$
$\text{ Total number of sectors in the wheel }= 3 + 1 + 1 = 5$
$\therefore \text{ Number of possible outcomes } = 5$
$\text{ Let A, B and C be the events of getting a green, blue and red sector, respectively } .$
$\therefore P\left( A \right) = \frac{3}{5}, P\left( B \right) = \frac{1}{5} \text{ and }P\left( C \right) = \frac{1}{5}$
$\text{Hence, the probability of getting a green sector is the maximum }.$
