What does it mean when sampling is done without replacement

Answer:

The correct option is A) Once an individual is​ selected, the individual cannot be selected again.

Step-by-step explanation:

Consider the provided statement.

Without​ replacement mean each population sample unit has only one opportunity in the sample to be chosen.

For example:

If a bag contains 5 red and 3 white ball and you randomly select a white ball, the probability of selecting the white ball is 3/8.

Now if the experiment is done by without replacement that means the white ball (which you have selected) is no longer the part of the sample space.

Hence, we can say that once an individual is​ selected, the individual cannot be selected again.

Thus, the correct option is A) Once an individual is​ selected, the individual cannot be selected again.
