##### Possible Answers

- Bigger sample size, larger variability around the line, increased range of explanatory variable.
- Bigger sample size, larger variability around the line, decreased range of explanatory variable.
- Smaller sample size, smaller variability around the line, increased range of explanatory variable.
- Smaller sample size, larger variability around the line, decreased range of explanatory variable.
- Smaller sample size, smaller variability around the line, decreased range of explanatory variable.
