#### Solution

**`7/12`**

**Explanation:**

Here,

**In first Urn:**

White ball = 2

Red balls = 4

∴ Total balls in first urn = 2 + 4 = 6 balls

**In second Urn :**

White balls = 3

Red balls = 9

∴ Total balls in second urn = 3 + 9 = 12 balls

∴ Required probability = `2/6 xx 3/12 + 4/6 xx 9/12 = 7/12`
