Justification: In this study the results would be biased because all the parts of the population are not included in the study and also some of them might be favoured. Since the sample does not include all the parts of the population, the range would be restricting to determine the association between the variables of strong academic performance and high school GPA and average amount of time spent studying per day because population cannot be good representative of the population.

Whether the given study depicts an observational study or a designed experiment and to identify the response variable.
The study is conducted to compare the battery lives of a brand-name battery and a generic plain-label battery in digital cameras. For this purpose, 30 digital cameras are randomly selected and divided into 2 groups, one of the groups uses the brand-name battery while the other one uses the generic plain-label battery. In both the cameras, pictures are taken under identical conditions by keeping all variables, except the battery-type, in control.
