If you put your hand in without looking and take out the marbles one by one, the probability would be that if you took out a certain number you would remove equal quantifies of black and white marbles. The more marbles you took out, the higher the probability that the quantities of each would be equal. But this is only a probability; it is what we expect to happen. But we cannot rule out that you might, for instance, take out all the black marbles first. Again, if the bag contains twice as many white marbles as black, then the probability would be that after taking out a certain number of marbles you would have removed twice as many white marbles as black.

Obviously replacement is quicker if a part can be replaced from the front of an equipment- a pilot lamp, for instance. Where there may be difficulty in identifying a part such as in electronic equipment, the part must be clearly marked in a place which is easily visible.
