Probability of Dependent Events

1. 
The best definition for dependent events is
  1. a letter that represents a number.
  2. what you look for in a probability experiment.
  3. when one result does not affect another.
  4. when the first outcome affects the next one.
2. 
Which of the following are dependent events? There may be more than one correct answer.
  1. Rolling a die three times.
  2. Picking two cards from a deck of cards, one at a time, without replacement.
  3. Rolling two dice, one after the other.
  4. Picking three cards from a deck of cards, one at a time, with replacement.
3. 
If there are 20 marbles in a bag with 5 red, 10 green, 2 blue, and 3 yellow, what is the probability of pulling a green marble from the bag, then pulling a yellow marble from the bag?
  1. 13/20
  2. 3/19
