The track-and-field coach wants to know whether the students in the entire school prefer track races or field events. The coach draws a random sample from the following groups:

All students in each grade
All teachers in the school
All boys in each grade in the school
All students on the track-and-field team
Which group best represents the population she should take a random sample from to get the best results for her survey?


  1. All students in each grade
    audience: students – counts for both boys and girls.
    option (B) for teachers is irrevelant.
    option (C) doesn’t include girls.
    option (D) doesn’t include the entire school
    Hence, option A is correct.
