    Answer:

    B) The margin of error becomes smaller

    Step-by-step explanation:

    In a sample with a number n of people surveyed with a probability of a success of \pi, and a confidence level of 1-\alpha, we have the following confidence interval of proportions.

    \pi \pm z\sqrt{\frac{\pi(1-\pi)}{n}}

    In which

    z is the zscore that has a pvalue of 1 - \frac{\alpha}{2}.

    The width of the confidence interval is given by:

    W = z\sqrt{\frac{\pi(1-\pi)}{n}}

    So as n increases, the width, or margin of error, becomes smaller.

    As your sample size increases (let us say from 100 to 400 cases), which of the following becomes true?

    The answer is:

    B) The margin of error becomes smaller
