Researchers are investigating whether people who exercise with a training partner have a greater increase, on average, in targeted exercise intensity compared with people who exercise alone. Two methods of collecting data have been proposed.

Method I: Recruit volunteers who are willing to participate. Randomly assign each participant to exercise with a training partner or to exercise alone.
Method II: Select a random sample of people from all the people who exercise at a community fitness center. Ask each person in the sample whether they use a training partner, and use the response to create the two groups.
(a) For each method, the researchers will record the change in targeted exercise intensity for each person in the investigation. They will compare the mean change in intensity between those who exercise with a training partner and those who do not.

(i) Describe the population of generalization if method I is used. Explain your answer.
we could generalize to all the people who work out a gyms?

(ii) Describe the population of generalization if method II is used. Explain your answer.
The population would only be those at the fitness center, we could not generalize for the whole pop. of people who exercise at the gym?
