Can you help me understand this Statistics question?

A magazine provided results from a poll of 10001000

adults who were asked to identify their favorite pie. Among the

10001000

respondents,

1212%

chose chocolate pie, and the margin of error was given as

plus or minus±33

percentage points. Describe what is meant by the statement that “the margin of error was given as

plus or minus±33

percentage points.”

Choose the correct answer below.

The statement indicates that the study is 100%minus−33%equals=9797%

confident that the true population percentage of people that prefer chocolate pie is

1212%.

The statement indicates that the study is only 33%

confident that the true population percentage of people that prefer chocolate pie is exactly

1212%.

The statement indicates that the interval 1212%plus or minus±33%

is likely to contain the true population percentage of people that prefer chocolate pie.

The statement indicates that the true population percentage of people that prefer chocolate pie is in the interval 1212%plus or minus±33%.

A clinical trial tests a method designed to increase the probability of conceiving a girl. In the study 360360

babies were born, and

306306

of them were girls. Use the sample data to construct a

9999%

confidence interval estimate of the percentage of girls born. Based on the result, does the method appear to be effective?

Choose the correct answer below.

Using a sample statistic to estimate the population proportion is utilizing descriptive statistics.

Knowing the sample size necessary to estimate a population proportion is important.

We can use a sample proportion to construct a confidence interval to estimate the true value of a population proportion.

The sample proportion is the best point estimate of the population proportion.
