    2. More than
    3. 2 times
    4. Equal to
  15. In sampling without replacement, an element can be chosen:
    1. Less than once
    2. More than once
    3. Only once
    4. Difficult to tell
  16. Which of the following statement is true?
    1. Standard error is always one
    2. Standard error is always zero
    3. Standard error is always negative
    4. Standard error is always positive
  17. Random sampling is also called:
    1. Probability sampling
    2. Non-probability sampling
    3. Sampling error
    4. Random error
  18. Non-random sampling is also called:
    1. Biased sampling
    2. Non-probability sampling
    3. Random sampling
    4. Representative sample
  19. Sampling error can be reduced by:
    1.  Non-probability sampling
    2. Increasing the population
    3. Decreasing the sample size
    4. Increasing the sample size
  20. A Plan for obtaining a sample from a population is called:
    1. Population design
    2. Sampling design
    3. Sampling frame
    4. Sampling distribution
  21. The difference between the expected value of a statistic and the value of the parameter being estimated is called a:
    1. Sampling error
    2. Non-sampling error
    3. Standard error
    4. Bias
  22. The standard deviation of any sampling distribution is called:
    1. Standard error
    2. Non-sampling error
    3. Type- I error
    4. Type II-error
  23. The standard error increases when sample size:
    1. Increases
    2. Decreases
    3. is Fixed
    4. is More than 30
  24. The mean of the sample means is exactly equal to the:
    1. Sample mean
    2. Population mean
    3. Weighted mean
    4. Combined mean
  25. When a random sample is drawn from each stratum, it is known as:
    1. Simple random sampling
    2. Stratified random sampling
    3. Probability sampling
    4. Purposive sampling
  26. Suppose a finite population has 6 items and 2 items are selected at random without replacement, then all possible samples will be:
    1. 6
    2. 12
    3. 15
    4. 36
  27. In random sampling, the probability of selecting an item from the population is:
