1 the all students in the college. (b) the 100 students who are selected. (c) scale. (d) nominal
2 As the parameter is calculated from the population and because the population is fixed, the parameter is also fixed. On the other hand, statistic is calculated from the sample and is changed again and again in each experiment. So the statistic will varies.
