Right choice is (c)
5
21
 
 
For explanation I would say: Since  6 balls are green, the probability of first ball to be drawn is green =
6
9
 
 
The probability of the first ball to be green, 8 balls are left and 5 out of them are green =
5
8
 
 
If the first two balls are green, then the probability of the third ball to be green =
4
7
 
 
According to multiplication theorem,
6
9
.
5
8
.
4
7
=
5
