    So with inferential statistics, you get descriptive statistics from a sample of a population and then you use those statistics about the sample to make inferences about the whole population.

    For example, testing every light bulb the company makes is NOT an example of inferential statistics because they test all the light bulbs, not a sample of light bulbs. Two of the options are examples about inferential statistics.
