There are 2 bags filled with 25 pounds of potatoes each. The bag on the left is filled with small potatoes, while the bag on the right is filled with large potatoes.
Which bag is bigger?

Both will same, because for ex : small bag contains 10 potatoes, where as big bag contains 5 potatoes with large size that means double of small potatoes

It is the bag on the left,
because,
while the potatoes are smaller, both bags still have the same amount of potato mass. There are more potatoes in the left bag, therefor, more spaces between potatoes. Making the bag bigger.

There is a bag which have 21 blue balls and 23 red balls. You also have 22 red balls outside the bag.

Randomly remove two balls from the bag.
* If they are of different colors, put the blue one back in the bag.
* If they are the same color, take them out and put a red marble back in the bag.

Repeat this until only one marble remains in the bag.

What is the color of the sole marble left in the bag ?
