Answer is $\dfrac{69}{91}$  (none of the given choices)

Number of ways in which $4$ marbles can be picked
$=15\text{C}4$

Number of ways in which $4$ marbles can be picked where there is no blue marble
$=11\text{C}4=330$

Probability that there is no blue marble
$=\dfrac{11\text{C}4}{15\text{C}4}=\dfrac{22}{91}$

Probability that there is at least one blue marble
$=1-\dfrac{22}{91}=\dfrac{69}{91}$
