25 percent of the hearing people avoid the
deaf in every which way possible! Is this
survey valid? 2,000 hearing people were
asked questions about the deaf, and 500
of them said they avoid the deaf. Is
2.000 too small or enough for a survey?

The house was on fire, and the 2-year old
child smelled the smoke. The family was saved.
