Answer #1

The “population” in statistics includes all members of a defined group that we are studying or collecting information on for data driven decisions.

A part of the population is called a sample. It is a proportion of the population, a slice of it, a part of it and all its characteristics. A sample is a scientifically drawn group that actually possesses the same characteristics as the population – if it is drawn randomly.

Lets take a class which contains 50 students is population.

From that class we select few students lets say, students who are from a particular city is a sample.
