    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.
