Suppose an athlete shoots $200$ free throws and makes $160$ of them.
Which of the following statements is true?
This athlete is an $80\%$ free-throw shooter.
A sample of $100$ free throws would be more effective in estimating the athlete’s true free-throw percentage.
The athlete’s true free-throw percentage is probably somewhere near $80\%$.
The athlete could easily make fewer than $100$ free throws in the next set of $200$ free throw attempts.
No reasonable conclusions can be drawn from this data.
