    Hunter wants to prove to his parents that playing computer games while he studies for tests will help him get better grades. He decides to ask 30 of his friends if they play computer games while they study for their tests and what their grades are. He finds that his friends who have high grades also play computer games while they do their homework. He tells his parents that he has proven that playing games while studying for tests will cause his grades to improve. What mistake has Hunter made?

    I don't think it's the last answer because I don't think using a survey is technically considered a "Mistake"

    I think it's the 2nd one, " He did not use a random sample, and he tried to show cause and effect with an observational study." Since he simply asked his friends, without gathering any real tangible or reliable information. Plus, he already knew the subjects being asked, so they could've just told him what he wanted to hear...
