$\begin{array}{1 1}(A)\;\large\frac{5}{9}\\(B)\;\large\frac{2}{9}\\(C)\;\large\frac{1}{9}\\(D)\;\text{None of these}\end{array} $

Step 1:

Let the probability of D selected be $'x'$

$\therefore P(D)=x$

$P(C)=2x$

$P(B)=2x$

$P(A)=4x$

$P(A)+P(B)+P(C)+P(D)=1$

Sum of all probabilities =1

$\therefore 4x+2x+2x+x=1$

$9x=1$

$x=\large\frac{1}{9}$

Step 2:

A will not be selected

$\therefore P(A$ will not selected)=$1-P(A)=1-4x$

$\Rightarrow 1-\large\frac{4}{9}=\frac{5}{9}$

Hence (A) is the correct answer.
