Section 1)What is Statistics?

Questions:

- When every possible sample with the same number of observation is equally likely to be chosen, the result is called a:
- Which of the following types of samples is almost always biased?

Section 3- Probability

Question:

- An approach of assigning probabilities which assumes that all outcomes of the experiment are equally likely is referred to as the:
- The collection of all possible outcomes of an experiment is called:
- If event A and event B cannot occur at the same time, then A and B are said to be:
- Which of the following best describes the concept of marginal probability?
- The intersection of events A and B is the event that occurs when:
- If the outcome of event A is not affected by event B, then events A and B are said to be:
- Suppose P(A) = 0.35. The probability of the complement of A is:
- If the event A and B are independent with P(A)= 0.30 and P(B) = 0.40, then the probability that both events will occur simultaneously is:
- If A and B are mutually exclusive events with P(A) = 0.30 and P(B)= 0.40, then P(A or B) is:

Section 4- Sampling Distribution

Questions:

- The standard deviation of the sampling distribution of x is also called the:
