Solution

Total sectors = 3 + 1 + 1 = 5

There are 5 sectors and we can get a green sector in three cases.

Probability of getting a green sector = `3/5`

We will get a non blue sector when we will get either a green sector or a red sector. Hence, 4 cases of such type are possible in which we will get a non blue sector.

Probability of getting a non blue sector = `4/5`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
