Random sampling ensures that the composition of the sample matches the composition of the population.

Because of chance factors, the composition of the sample will differ somewhat from the composition of the population.

false
Assume a population in which 60% of the members prefer Candidate A, 30% prefer Candidate B, and 10% prefer Candidate C. A simple random sample of 10 is taken from this population.

As you can see in the demonstration, 6 occurs about 25% of the time.
true
false
It is likely but not certain that exactly 6 of the sample will prefer Candidate A.
false
There is about a 50% chance that exactly 6 of the sample will prefer Candidate A.
true
The chance that exactly 6 of the sample will prefer Candidate A is much lower than 50%.
