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

Step 1
According to central limit theorem, sampling distribution of means approaches normal when the sample size increases.
Step 2
Therefore Sampling distributions of means get closer to normality as the sample size increases.
Option C is correct.

When the sample size is sufficiently large, obviously the sampling distributions get closer to normality. So option d is the correct answer.
