Determine whether the given procedure results in a binomial distribution (or a distribution that can be treated as binomial). If the procedure is not binomial, identify at least one requirement that is not satisfied. The YSORT method of gender selection, developed by the Genetics & IVF Institute, was designed to increase the likelihood that a baby will be a boy. When 60 couples use the YSORT method and give birth to 60 babies, the genders of the babies are recorded. Does the procedure represent a binomial distribution?
