Only 3 (answer 1) because there are only 3 colours and only one marble is drawn. The probabilities of drawing a particular colour are different because there are different numbers of coloured marbles.

WRONG! ITS 4, NOT 3! ANSWER 4!  Not best answer....
I wrongly assumed the marbles of the same colour were identical. So good for you in correcting that assumption!
The highest outcome would be yellow then blue then red since six is the highest number there is there is going to be more yellow then red or blue
