He stood at the west entrance of the mall. C. He only approached people coming into the mall, not those going out. D. He only asked every 100th person. shou

reasoning?
inkyvoyd
  • inkyvoyd
Bias means partiality. His assignment cannot be assumed to be flawless, so the logic that part of his assignment is "correct" is flawed.

  • inkyvoyd
It can't be A, because people he knew would give a different answer.

It can't be D, because asking every hundred people is a fair way to choose out of a large group.

now im thinking it's C, because people who enter the mall may feel differently when leaving it.
inkyvoyd
  • inkyvoyd
Both B and C are biased,but I would say that B is more biased, because people could be more likely to go to the mall

for the west entrance.

And, actually, your reasoning is better than mine, so It's probably c.
