Answer should be 1/25

Because we need to select one ball randomly

It can be red,green,blue.

Hi answer should be 1/25 since , first probability of selection 9 red balls from 25 balls should be taken and then probability of selection of smallest red ball i.e (9/25 )*(1/9) = 1/25 .

Admin Please correct .
