1. The procedure has a fixed number of trials. Here, 291 couples use the YSORT method of gender selection.

2. The trials must be independent. Here, we assume that the population is very large and the sample size is less than 5% of the population. So, from the 5% Guideline for Cumbersome Calculations, if a sample size...
