Identify the (a) sample and (b) population. Also, determine wheather the sample is likely to be representative of the population.

America online asked subscibers to respond to this question: "Which slogan do you hate the most?" Responders were given several slogans used to promote car sales, and Volkswagon's slogan received 55% of the 33,160 responses. The Volkswagon slogan was "releives gas pains."

Ray Atkinson :

The best answer to this is that the sample is AOL users who responded to the question, and the population is possible buyers of Volkswagens. Since there is no reason to think that people in the population that are not AOL users would respond in a different way to the selection of slogans., I would say that the sample is probably representative of the population.
