Hi(-:

A newspaper editor wants to know whether people who buy the newspaper like the paper’s new format. He prints an alphabetical list of all the employee names and asks every fifth person on the list. Is the sample likely to be biased or unbiased? Explain your answer.

I know that's it's Biased but I can't fully get my answer out.

I beleive its biased because he is only asking those who works for the newspaper but every fifth person..

You're right. It's biased because the only people in the survey are newspaper employees.

Thank so much!

3. Ms. Sue

You're welcome.
