The probability of getting 3 white balls in a draw of 5 balls with replacement from an urn containing white balls and black balls is always greater than the same test without replacement, because the number of white balls decreases when you draw a white ball and do not replace it. The ratio of white to black with replacement is constant, and is always less than one, assuming there is at least one black ball. The ratio of white to black without replacement decreases each turn, and is still less than one, and is less than the previous ratio, unless the question asked about 2 white balls or less.
