- whole
- holy
- cluster
- stratified

**2. **For a regional survey of suburban households to obtain data on television viewing habits, a statistical sample of suburban areas is first selected. Within the chosen areas, statistical samples of whole blocks are selected; and within the selected blocks, random samples of households are selected. This type of sample selection can be best described as:

- Attribute sampling
- Stratified sampling
- Cluster sampling
- Interval sampling

**3.** A simple random sample requires that: -

- The population be unbiased
- Every item in the population has an equal chance of being selected
- The distribution or original data be approximately normal
- The expected deviation rate be low (less than 5%)

**4. **Convenience sampling is also referred to as:

- Purposive sampling
- Quota sampling
- Judgment sampling
- Accidental sampling

**5. **Which is not a form of probability sampling?

- Simple random sample
- Systematic sample
- Stratified sample
- Convenience sample

**6. **Which of the following is an example of non-statistical sampling?

- Sequential sampling
- Attribute sampling
- Haphazard sampling
- Random sampling

**7. **The advantage of using statistical sampling techniques is that such techniques:

- Mathematically measure risks
- Eliminate the need for judgmental decisions
- Are easier to use than other sampling techniques
- Have been established in the courts to be superior to non-statistical sampling.

**8. **An underlying feature of random-based selection of items in an accounting population is that each -

- Stratum of the accounting population is given equal representation in that sample.
- Items in the accounting population are randomly ordered.
- Items in the accounting population should have an opportunity to be selected
- Items must be systematically selected using the replacement method.
