Can you help me with some True / False questions on statistics? I think I am reading too much into the question for True / False.
*Variation in the population has little if any effect on the amount of samplingthat will be experienced?
*Parameters are numbers that can be used to describe characteristics of population?
*Values in a basic frequency tables are directly affected by the size of the sample?
*The most common measure of the center value of a set of datais the sample mean?
*The meanand the medianare possible point estimators but the modeis not?
*Because population parameter values are usually known, point estimates are seldowm used to measure them?
*Two fair coins are tossed at the same time. The probabilitythat both show heads is 0.5?
Please see response to your posting as follows.

–> False: Variation in the population affects amount of sampling. More the variation in the population larger sample size is required to achieve desired confidence level. Also, the samples drawn from a polulation with larger variation tend have difference in variance whereas population with smaller variance would tend to have homogenous samples in terms of variance.
