Using sampling concepts, it is found that the population and the sample are given by:

Population: all the chicken meat; Sample: three random places in the chicken.

What is sampling?

It is a common statistics practice, when we want to study something from a population, we find a sample of this population, which is a group containing elements of a population.

In this problem, a group of 3 chicken meat is taken from all the chicken meat, which is the population, hence the correct option is given by:

Population: all the chicken meat; Sample: three random places in the chicken.
