Answer: e. II and III

II. The mean of sample G, TG, is a point estimator for the mean of the population.

III. The mean of sample H, my, is a point estimator for the mean of the population.

Step-by-step explanation:

The point estimate simply means deriving a single value from a sample which could be used as a good or close estimate of the population from which the sample was drawn. A point estimator for the mean in the scenario above means a best guess of the mean value of the population from the sample mean.

Hence, since both sample G and H are drawn from the same population, both TG and TH which are mean of sample G and H can be used as a point estimator for the mean of the population.

However, it is does not necessarily mean that either the sample mean TG or TH must be equal to the population mean
