Post a New Question

Posted by on .

At your summer job with a research company, you must get a random sample of people from your town to answer a question about spending habits. Which of the following methods is most likely to be random?

A) You survey customers at the local shopping mall.
B) You survey people chosen randomly from the local phonebook.
C) You survey several of your friends.
D) You survey customers at a popular restaurant

    None of these would be random today. When this question was written, the phone book would be the obvious choice. However, in 2012, over 38% of adults have no landline, so they won't be listed in phone books.

    (I hate these questions that are so out-of-date!)

    (I hate them to :c)
    So since we know that this question is old, would it be C? That was my first guess but I wasn't really sure...

    Surveying your friends would not be random.

    If you're looking for spending habits, a mall might be the most appropriate.

    Tell your teacher there is no good answer for this question.

    Oh, okay. Thanks a bunch!! Again! Also, I do an online school. So I don't know if they can change the question or remove it.. :c

  • Math Help Please? c: Thank you :3 - ,

    I thought so. Online schools tend to use a lot of really old information and questions. :-(

  • Math Help Please? c: Thank you :3 - ,

    Yeah, I've noticed that. It's kinda irritating.. :(
