Given:
The provided statement is, “As sample size increases, the sampling distribution of \(\overline{x}\) becomes more and more skewed.”
The central limit theorem is one of the important concepts of the large sample theory. It can be stated, “If the size of a sample increases, the population mean can be approximated by the sample mean and the population standard deviation becomes approximately equal to the ratio of the sample standard deviation and the square root of the sample size.”
In other words,central limit theorem, for a sufficiently large sample size, the sampling distributions of the mean tend to be normal distribution, irrespective of the distribution of the population.
Therefore, as sample size increases the sampling distribution of \(\overline{x}\) becomes less and less skewed. Hence, the provided statements are false.

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.

Here are summary statistics fro randomly selected weights of newborn girs:
n=240, x=26.1hg, s=6.3hg
Construct a confidence interval estimate of the mean. Use a 99% confidence level. Are these results very different from the confidence interval
25.1hg<μ<28.1hg
with only 13 sample values,
x=26.6hg and s=1.8hg?
What is the confidence interval for the population mean μ?
Are the results between the two confidence intervals very different?
a) No, because each confidence interval contains the mean of the other confidence interval.
b) No, because the confidence interval limits are similar.
c) Yes, because the confidence interval limits are not similar.
d) Yes, because one confidence interval does not contain the mean of the other confidence interval.
