Question 6

For question 6, the answer C does not say anything about how many surveyed readers returned the survey. Does that effect the answer?

@Marianne-Xiong,

Great question. You're right; (C) doesn't say anything about how many
readers returned the survey. However, this doesn't matter because (C)
tells us something even more important: the survey accurately reflects
the feelings of the readership as a whole. The real reason we'd care
about how many survey readers returned the survey would be to see how
closely the survey's population represents the readership as a whole.
(C) doesn't tell us how many readers returned the survey, but it
assures us that the survey's results mirror the readership's
preferences, and this is what really matters to us.

Does this help? Let us know if you have any other questions!
