Most car accidents occur within 5 miles of home.
No two snowflakes are alike.
The odds of being hit by lightning twice in a long life time are one in 9 million.
The rest are yours to think of...

Maybe they want more descriptive terms? I have a snowball's chance in hell of getting an A in this course.

This is another ques. If I am to select 60 inhabitants from a area of 400 persons how would I start doing this using simple and stratified random sample? An example please. Don't have to tell me in details just want to see if I'm on the right track... thank you

You didn't answer my query =\

And for your next question, you didn't even say where you stand/what you suggested as answer to tell if you're on the right track or not...
