Designing Experiment Clinical trials of Nasonex involved a group given placebos and another group given treatments of Nasonex. Assume that a preliminary phase I trial is to be conducted with 12 subjects, including 6 men and 6 women. If 6 of the 12 subjects are randomly selected for the treatment group, find the probability of getting 6 subjects of the same gender. Would there be a problem with having members of the treatment group all of the same gender?
