Within the EPR paradox for polarizations of particles the question is formulated: whether a source of pairs of oppositely flying particles emits them in an entangled state or as individual particles with their own polarizations. To answer this question the simplest Bell’s inequality for photons is proposed. It can be checked in a single measurement. The outcome of the possible measurement with account of experimental limitations is calculated.
