    It is not a valid sample because it is only a short study. It is a valid sample because money is offered to participants. It is a valid sample because the first 10 people were selected to participate. It is not a valid sample because it is not a random sample of the population.

    I think that those ten people are not a random sample

    I'm not sure but I'd say: It is not a valid sample because it is not a random sample of the population.
