a.
AB, AC, AD, AE, BC, BD, BE, CD, CE, DE
b.
With 10 samples, each has a 1/10 probability.
c.
E and C because 8 and 0 do not apply.; 5 identifies E; 7 does not apply; 5 is skipped since E is
already in the sample; 3 identifies C; 2 is not needed since the sample of size 2 is complete.
2.
Using the last 3-digits of each 5-digit grouping provides the random numbers:
601, 022, 448, 147, 229, 553, 147, 289, 209
Numbers greater than 350 do not apply and the 147 can only be used once.
Thus, the
simple random sample of four includes 22, 147, 229, and 289.
