the best example of the use of random sampling to determine who will be elected as your school president would involve
a. asking each student in your class whom he or she would vote for
b. asking one student in each classroom whom he or she would vote for
c. picking out a specific number of students as they leave the school, and asking whom they would vote for
d. asking every seventh student on an alphabetized list of all students whom they would vote for
i think its d
a is no good because the other classes do not know you as well, for better or worse.
b is much better but some classes may be much bigger than others and you are counting all equally.
c can be biased by who is not at school that day because of the flu affecting 11th grade football players.
d That sounds like a pretty good way.
asking every seventh student on an alphabetized list of all students whom they would vote for.
the answer is D
