    A pack of 12 cards contains 4 each of three different colours. The dealer gives one card to himself, one to Player A and one to Player B. Each player receives £2 if his card matches the dealer’s card in colour. In addition, the players receive £1 each if their cards match each other.
    Let X be the amount received by Player A, Y the amount received by player B in one round of this game.

    (i) Suppose the dealer’s card is turned up first, then A’s, then B’s. Construct a tree
    diagram to show all the possible outcomes.

    Like what the hell. I don't understand the first sentence let alone answering the question.

    There are 12 cards in total in the pack. There are three different colour cards, say red(R) blue(B) and green(G). There are four cards of each colour: 4 x R, 4 x B, 4 x G.
