Which of the following is true about sampling distributions?
-Shape of the sampling distribution is always the same shape as the population distribution, no matter what the sample size is.
-Sampling distributions are always nearly normal.
-Sampling distribution of the mean is always right skewed since means cannot be smaller than 0.
-Sampling distributions get closer to normality as the sample size increases.

Step 1
When the sample size increases, then the sampling distribution of mean gets closer to normality.
Step 2
Therefore, the true statement about the sampling distributions is “Sampling distributions get closer to normality as the sample size increases”.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the age at first startup for 55% of entrepreneurs was 29 years of age or less and the age at first startup for 45% of entrepreneurs was 30 years of age or more.
a. Suppose a sample of 200 entrepreneurs will be taken to learn about the most important qualities of entrepreneurs. Show the sampling distribution of p where p is the sample proportion of entrepreneurs whose first startup was at 29 years of age or less.
b. Suppose a sample of 200 entrepreneurs will be taken to learn about the most important qualities of entrepreneurs. Show the sampling distribution of p where p is now the sample proportion of entrepreneurs whose first startup was at 30 years of age or more.
c. Are the standard errors of the sampling distributions different in parts (a) and (b)?
