But isn't \mu fixed when you choose a particular hypothesis h. [ Because number of red marbles is equal to the number of points in the input space where hypothesis ( h ) and target function ( f ) disagree. And this, in my opinion, has nothing to do with probability distribution function ]

Please clarify.
