Answer:
**13/28**

You can calculate the probability of picking two empty boxes. If you pick one box, you have a chance of 6/8 (=3/4) to find nothing inside. Then there are seven boxes left, of which five are empty, so there's a chance of 5/7 that your second box is empty as well. 3/4 x 5/7 = 15/28 to find nothing, which means 13/28 to find at least one present.
