    This is not a probability question.

    Label:
    Small = S
    Large = L
    Red = R
    Blue = B
    Green = G


    The only bears that exist as per the given statement are:
    S (color not known)
    L R
    L B

    and we know that LB and SB cannot exist.

    Given the context - a large Green bear is also not possible because Large bears are only red or blue

    I believe 1 and 2 can exist since there is no restrictions on small bears.
    Answer should be A
    Hey Harvard, I am right here!!
    rep me if I made some sense

    Sandeep is correct about this not being probability question.
    I might add that this doesn't seem like a GMAT question either.
    What's the source of the question?

    Cheers,
    Brent
