By "rank of eight" I assume you mean any eight card. The probability of that happening on the first draw is 4/52.

Since tha first card drawn is then replaced in the deck, the probability of drawing a diamond in the next draw is 13/52, and you just multiply the two probabilities.

The answer would therefore be (4/52)*(13/52) = 1/52.
