The Probability that the first one you pick is not faulty is 24/30. If you did, pick a faulty one, there are 29 left and the probability of picking a good one is 23/29. so the probabilty of picking 2 good ones is (24*23)/(30*29). The probablility that at keast one is defective is 1- (24*23)/(29*30). This is sometimes called sampling without replacement.
