The sampling distribution of the sample median does not follow a normal distribution.
Thus, the correct option is (b).
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.
