An urn contains balls ofs different colors. The problem of the reinforcement of a specified color and random depletion of balls has been considered by Bernard (1977,Bull. Math. Biol.,39, 463–470) and Shenton (1981,Bull. Math. Biol.,43, 327–340), (1983,Bull. Math. Biol.,45, 1–9). Here we consider a special relation between a reinforcement and depletion, leading to a hypergeometric distribution.
