Sample space (Ω) is the set of possible outcomes.

(a) the set of possible outcomes is the set each of the coloured marbles:

Ω={R,B,G,Y,W}

(b) Without replacement means that the two marbles are of different colours, so the sample space is

{RB,RG,RY,RW,BG,BY,BW,GY,GW,...}

There are 20 of them, order counts, for example, RG and GR are different outcomes.
