A video game company surveys a random sample of 250 gamers who report annual income of $50,000. The company finds that the average gamer spends $206 a year on games, with a standard deviation of $12.
Another company is also interested in the amount game consumers spend, and surveys a random sample of 225 gamers with a verified yearly income of $50,000. The company finds that the average gamer spends $250 a year on games, with a standard deviation of $15.
Why is the second survey more believable than the first?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes I would go with C as well because in the first survey the people themselves say 50,000 and in the second survey, the company finds people who actually make 50,000
