Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

total cards in the box=20

probability of picking blue card =2/20

which is 1/10

probability of picking red card is =16/20

which is 8/10

the word OR refers to +

hence the probability of picking red or blue =8/10+1/10

the answer is 9/10
