A researcher wants to obtain a random sample of the 800 cows from a local farm. He decides to ask the farmer to give him the ear tag numbers of 100 cows he can use in his study. The researcher puts these tag numbers into a hat and randomly chooses 40 to include in his study.

I don't think it's random because the farmer chose the 100 cows.
