Step 1

In this question we have given the data on situation of university , where some students use university bus service. On the basis of given information we ahve to answer some questions based on that sample. 

 

Step 2

Parameter: Parameters refers to the value that defines the whole population. In this question, Parameter is the percentage of population who use campus bus system last week.

Population: In this question population is all the students who are studying in the college.

Sample: Sample is a subset of population, with the help of which we calculate the statistics and make inferences about the population. In this question 400 students from the list of students with parking stickers is sample.

Statistic: It is a numerical value that defines the characteristics of the sample and by the help of statistic we make inferences. In this question “p = 0.20” is statistic because it defines that 20% of sample uses campus bus service last week.
