Hi All,


In the GA for beginners Assement2, I came across a question on Rate of Sampling of Reports. I selected option 2 which is believe is the correct answer. Any someone help me understand why this is wrong? Could the answer be "Remove the Secondary Dimension" ?


How do you increase the sampling rate for reports in Google Analytics?

This answer is incorrect. 
 Choose “Greater precision” in the sampling pulldown menu
 Choose “Faster response” in the sampling pulldown menu
 Apply additional filters
 Remove the Secondary Dimension

When you wish to have greater precision, you need more samples or more frequent samples to ensure data accuracy. This is the general principle. Faster response would include less samples, Greater precision would include more samples.
