The music industry is a huge financial industry. When a song is played on a radio station, the musicians are entitled to a royalty payment. It would be impossible to listen to every song played on every radio station to determine the royalties due to each musician. Instead, The American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) randomly samples radio stations and times of day to listen to the music being played and to determine the royalties due to each musician.

Which of the following statements is FALSE?

A

The sample is the group of songs randomly chosen by ASCAP.

B

ASCAP's song selection procedure most closely resembles a census.

C

The population of interest is all songs played on all radio stations.

D

Because the radio stations and times of day are randomly selected, the sample of songs should be representative of the population of all songs played on all radio stations.

E

The more times an artists' songs are played, the more they stand to earn.
