Central Limit Theorem and Sample Size

STATS-ETYXCA

Picture two population distributions that are very different. Distribution 1 is extremely skewed and distribution 2 is mound-shaped and symmetric.

What would be required to make the sampling distributions of 1 and 2 have the same degree of normality?

A

A larger sample size would be required from population 1.

B

A larger sample size would be required from population 2.

C

The same sample size would be required from both populations.

D

Sample size does not affect the degree of normality of a sampling distribution.
