Which is the best explanation of why his conclusion might not be true?

    The 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 eighth-graders only. The choir only meets one day a week.

    He only surveyed people in the choir class. He didn't survey anyone in other classes

    He 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
