  1. The question never asks the probability for either death or survival so, why bother? In the 1st bowl there are 3 poisonous + 2 good apples and you have to eat two. So, 5C2=10 and there are 10 ways to choose 2 apples. In the 2nd bowl there are 2 poisonous + 3 good apples and you have to eat three. So, 5C3=10 and there are 10 ways to choose 3 apples. Since the number of ways you can choose the required number of apples from either bowl is the same, it doesn't matter which bowl you choose.
