    Probability and stat

    If we make a survey on 100 countries we only find maximum 1 person that genius, but if we make a survey on 1000 countries we only find less than 10 person that genius.

    (how many countries are there is not specified)

    Is the statement above right or wrong ?

    It's correct because these are surveys that validate actual data instead of estimating means.
