Question

In an issue of Discover (Vol. 26, No. 5, p. 14), A. Casselman looked at the natural-hazards risk index of megacities to evaluate potential loss from catastrophes such as earthquakes, storms, and volcanic eruptions. Urban areas have more to lose from natural perils, technological risks, and environmental hazards than rural areas. The top 10 megacities in the world are Tokyo, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Osaka, Miami, New York, Hong Kong, Manila, London, and Paris.
a. There are 45 possible samples (without replacement) of size 2 that can be obtained from these 10 megacities. If a simple random sampling procedure is used, what is the chance of selecting Manila and Miami?
b. There are 252 possible samples (without replacement) of size 5 that can be obtained from these 10 megacities. If a simple random sampling procedure is used, what is the chance of selecting Tokyo, Los Angeles, Osaka, Miami, and London?
c. Suppose that you decide to take a simple random sample of five of these 10 megacities. Use Table I in Appendix A to obtain five random numbers that you can use to specify your sample.
d. If you have access to a random-number generator, use it to solve part (c).
