Choose the best answer that explains conditions necessary for a two sample t test.

Sampling is taken from the GSS, an extremely reliable source. That is all we need to know.

We can assume random sampling.

We can assume this is a volunteer sample.

Groups are dependent on each other, making them perfect for two mean significance tests.
