How do I explain Part B?

Jose and Mirka each asked 50 students in their school whether they prefer comedy or action movies. The table

gives the results of their poll.

                           comedy           action
Jose's group             20                 30
Mirka's group           25                  25
When all the students at their school were surveyed, 70% preferred comedy. Explain a possible reason why Jose’s

and Mirka’s sample groups were not a good representation of the students in their school
