B: Answer B is incorrect because both internally and externally generated evidence are acceptable for audit sampling. C: Answer C is correct because audit sampling is the application of an audit procedure to less than 100% of the items within an account balance or class of transactions for the purpose of evaluating some characteristic of the balance or class. D: Answer D is incorrect because both statistical and nonstatistical sampling techniques are acceptable.
