Incorrect. Sample size greater than 10 is large enough whenever the data are collected with an SRS. Note that sample size large does not depend on the value of p.

Incorrect. The entire interval (0.66, 0.94) is greater than 0.5, so yes, over half of all patients who might use duct tape to get rid of their warts will be successful.
