    I know nothing about statistics. Everything I know about probabilities comes from the combinatorial section of my discrete math class. Sorry

    I agree with Anwar. Descriptive statistics doesn't aim to make inferences. A and E seek to make conclusions about the coin fairness (say the sample is 100 flips with the population being infinitely many flips) and population fish health

    Yeah. My understanding is that descriptive statistics are what describe the collected data. That includes features like mean, median and graphs.
