### Explanation of Solution

Given:

The given information is,

A random sample of 1496 respondents of a major metropolitan area was questioned about a number of issues.

When asked to agree or disagree with the statement "Internet pornography leads to rape and other sex crimes,” 823 agreed.

Approach:

The confidence interval is an interval estimate from the statistics of the observed data that might contain the true value of the unknown population parameter.

Formula used:

For large samples and given sample proportion, the confidence interval (c.i.) is given by,

c.i.=Ps±Z(Pu(1Pu)N)

Where, Ps is the sample proportion,

Pu is the population proportion,

Z is the Z score determined by the alpha level and,

N is the sample size.

Calculation:

From the given information, the sample size is 1496,

Sample proportion is,

8231496=0.55

And the population proportion is 0.5.

For 95%, the Z value is given as,

Z(95%)=1.96

For large samples and given sample proportion, the confidence interval (c
