it is D : because he has took away one pair of white socks for the first event.which leave us with a total of 19 possibilities: 11 white socks + 8 black sucks (total possibilities)
and we want to know the possibility of get a white pair of sucks ( again)
No...but its without replacement so its 20
if you don't replace it then it would me 19 not 20
P = 8/ 19 ( EIGHT PAIRS of white socks over the total possibilities
there are 12 pairs of white socks and 8 pairs of black socks.
