Answer:

#1/9#

Explanation:

Initial condition:

3 red
2 blue
5 green

Total #3+2+5=10#

Probability of blue is #2/10#
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Second condition:

3 red
1 blue
5 green

New total #3+1+5=9#

Probability of green is #5/9#
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Total probability of selecting this path is:

#2/10xx5/9" "=" "2/9xx5/10" "=" "2/9xx1/2" "=" "1/9#
