Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:The answer to this question is D: None of the aboveStep-by-step explanation:From the example given in the question, this is a bad way of data sampling. The example in the question is a typical Voluntary response sample. In this type of sampling, the researcher creates a request as the case may be in the example through television, and ask for members of a population to join. Thus people then choose to be part of the sample or not. In this type of sampling, the respondents tend to have alike opinion in contrast to the rest of the population. This therefore makes voluntary response sample kind of bias.
