Question 17
To determine if a sample is truly representative of the population, an auditor would be required to:
conduct multiple samples of the same population.
never use sampling because of the expense involved.
audit the entire population.
use systematic sample selection

block sample selection.
haphazard selection.
systematic sample selection.
statistical selection.

Question 19
Which of the following is the risk that an auditor will reach an incorrect conclusion because a sample is not representative of the population?
Sampling risk
Nonsampling risk
Audit risk
Detection risk

Question 20
The auditor's best estimate of the population exception rate is the:
current year's sample exception rate.
tolerable exception rate.
prior year's sample exception rate.
computed upper exception rate

Question 21
Rodgers CPA believes that the rate of client billing errors is 4% and has established a tolerable deviation rate of 6%. In auditing client invoices Rodgers should use:

classical sampling.
proportional sampling.
attributes sampling.

Question 22
A sample in which the characteristics of the sample are the same as those of the population is a(n):
variables sample.
representative sample.
attributes sample.
random sample.

Question 23
The process which requires the calculation of an interval and then selects the items based on the size of the interval is:
statistical sampling.

Question 24
When auditors wish to evaluate a sample statistically, an acceptable selection method is:

Yes Yes
Adjusting the sample size Always using random sampling
No No
Adjusting the sample size Always using random sampling
Yes No
Adjusting the sample size Always using random sampling
No Yes

Question 26
Which of the following would have the least impact in determining sample size for tests of controls?
Expected population exception rate.
Risk of assessing control risk too low.
Tolerable exception rate.
Population size.

Question 27
The advantage of systematic sample selection is that:
it is easy to use.
there is limited possibility of it being biased.
it is unnecessary to determine if the population is arranged randomly.
it automatically selects items material to the financial statements.

Question 28
One of the ways to eliminate nonsampling risk is through:
