    A dependent event has an outcome that could be influenced/affected by the outcome of a \(previous\) event. Examine the four cases and see which one fits the bill.

    ok so a dependent event is the one which depends on something for example- 1)lets take the pizza example it says that On Friday night, you order pizza and on Tuesday night, you also order pizza. u basically u buy a pizza no matter its friday or tuesday so this one is not the dependent event the answer wuld be A because they r not putting back the name that was pulled out 1st and thus the name pulled out on the second chance depends upon the name pulled out in 1st chance...

    Mathematically I agree with @imqwerty's response. I believe, however, the question is not clear-cut enough, or even flawed, about the Tuesday and Friday Pizza. Say, I do not eat pizza more than once a month. So ordering pizza on Friday could easily affect what I do on the following Tuesday. Also, financially, the two are related, since Thursday is pay day, I could be short of money on Tuesday. I would have used a better situation for examples like these.
