Miguel surveyed all the members of the junior high choir about their favorite class. The results from his survey are:
Favorite Class Number of Students
choir 19
math 7
history 5
English 9
science 4
Miguel concluded, from his results, that the favorite class among the entire student body would also be choir. Which is the best explanation of why his conclusion might not be true?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The survey should have been conducted each day for a week. His sample group does not represent the entire student body. The survey should have been conducted with the eighthgraders only. The choir only meets one day a week.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0He only asked students that are in choir what their favorite class is. So naturally most are going to say choir. To conduct a proper survey he should've gone to the math class, history class, English class, and science class and also surveyed those students. His survey was biased
