3. A certain community college sent out surveys to all 70 companies in the area that had hired 2009 graduates of the college. Only 9 of the companies who received a survey completed the questions and returned the survey to the college. Based on this fact, identify ALL the misuses of statistics in the following statement:
98% of companies responding to the latest survey indicate that they are very satisfied with recently hired employees who are 2009 graduates of our community college."
The sample is not of sufficient size to be representative of the population of interest.
There is no misuse of statistics in the quoted statement. chose this one
The survey was only sent to companies that the college knew were very satisfied with graduates of the college. chose this one
The sample is possibly biased, since employers who are either very satisfied or very dissatisfied are more likely to respond to the survey than employers who are more neutral on the subject

3. Last choice is correct. Notice that surveys sent to "all 70 companies."
