a) a player who is standing with both feet on the oor lifts one foot and puts it down again, or moves one foot from one place to another;
b) a player is touching the oor with one foot only, catches the ball and then touches the oor with the other foot;
c) a player after a jump touches the oor with one foot only, and then hops on the same foot or touches the oor with the other foot;
d) a player after a jump touches the oor with both feet simultaneously, and then lifts one foot and puts it down again, or moves one foot from one place to another.
