Answer #1

Simple Random Sampling is **e. all of the
above**

Simple Random Sampling needs a sampling frame, is least accurate and is seldom used in market.

Abstracts **e. Should do all of the above**

Abstracts should give you a good idea as to whether you will want to read the rest of the article, Should give you a framework for reading the rest of the article, May raise questions in your mind regarding methods or conclusions, May create an agenda to pursue in reading the article

A researchable question must be feasible. Which of the following
is not an element of feasibility?- **(b). None of
these**

We require time, funding as well as resources when checking feasibility of a research question.

The amount of contaminants that are allowed in food products is
determined by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). Common
contaminants in cow milk include feces, blood, hormones, and
antibiotics. Suppose you work for the FDA and are told that the
current amount of somatic cells (common name "pus") in 1 cc of cow
milk is currently 750,000 (note: this is the actual allowed amount
in the US!). You are also told the standard deviation is 83000
cells. The FDA...
