Let Ai ( i = 2, 3, 4, 5) be the event that urn contains 2, 3, 4, 5 white balls and let B be the event that two white balls have been drawn then we have to find P (A5/B).

Since the four events A2, A3, A4 and A5 are equally likely we have
P (A2) = P (A3) = P (A4) = P(A5) = .
P(B/A2) is probability of event that the urn contains 2 white balls and both have been drawn.
Similarly,
By Bayes’ theorem,
