hi everyone. Today we need to determine whether this situation would produce a random result. We have to write yes or no and then explain her answer. So our situation is serving people coming into a post office to find out what color cars are most popular. Well, in this case, it would be yes, because you aren't interviewing or surveying just one particular group people.
