Best answer

Simple Random Sampling: Is  a sampling technique where every item in the population has an even (equal) chance and likelihood of being selected in the sample.

In this question there is an equal number of variants of car manufacturing but the  analyst makes sure to  get 100 from every car manufacturer, this technique already shows some system to his sampling therefore it cannot be simple random sampling.
