1. $\large\frac{3}{7}$
2. $\large\frac{4}{7}$
3. $\large\frac{5}{7}$
4. $\large\frac{6}{7}$

$4$  balls can be chosen from  $10$  balls in   $^{10}C_4$ ways. (Total number of ways)

The desirable(favourable) case is choosing $2$ red balls from $6$ red balls and choosing $2$ green balls from $4$ green balls.

So the required probability would be:  $\frac{^{6}C_2\times ^{4}C_2}{^{10}C_4}$  $=$  $\frac{3}{7}$

Option A is correct.
