    Question must make sense.

    If a person "picks them out", you can pick whatever flavor you like.

    I've assumed that two yogurts are picked out, at random. The cooler has 30 yogurts: 24 Greek and 6 Vanilla.

    It seems like you're trying to ask how to determine the probability that two randomly-chosen yogurts will be picked in order (your friend's choice [Greek] for the first random pick and your choice [Vanilla] for the second pick).

    Is this all correct?

    What have you tried or thought about, so far? Have you studied any probability topics?
