Expert Answer

Step 1

Different types of sampling methods with examples.

Types of random samplings

(1) Simple random sampling

(2) Cluster sampling

(3) Systematic sampling

(4) Stratified random sampling

Step 2

(1) Simple random sampling:

One of the best probability sampling techniques that helps in saving time and resources, is the simple random sampling method. It is trustworthy method of obtaining information where every single member of population is chosen randomly, merely by chance and each individual has the exact same probability of being chosen to be a part of sample.
