Reason for the correct answer:
The sampling distribution of the sample median does not follow a normal distribution.
Thus, the correct option is (b).
Reasons for the incorrect answers:
The sample is a random sample from a population, which is not an important assumption.
Thus, option (a) is incorrect.
Option (c) is incorrect because there are outliers in the sample.
Conclusion:
An important assumption for using the bootstrap method is that the sample distribution for the sample median must not be well approximated by the normal distribution.

A random sample of 500 people were classified by their ages into 3 age-groups: 29 years and younger, 30 to 64 years, and 65 years and older. Each person from the sample was surveyed about which of 4 major brands of cell phone they used. Their responses were compiled and displayed in a 3-by-4 contingency table. A researcher will use the data to investigate whether there is an association between cell phone brand and age- group. Which of the following is the appropriate test for the investigation?
a. A one-sample t-test for a population mean
b. A two-sample t-test for a difference between means
c. A chi-square goodness-of-fit test
d. A chi-square test of homogeneity
e. A chi-square test of independence
