15-Which statement is incorrect?
(1) A null hypothesis is a statement about the value of a population parameter; it is put up for testing in
the face of numerical evidence.
(2) An alternative hypothesis is an assertion that holds if the null hypothesis is false.
(3) A one-tail test is one in which a null hypothesis can be rejected by an extreme result in one direction
only.
(4) A two-tail test is one in which a null hypothesis can be rejected by an extreme result occurring in either
direction.
(5) A p–value greater than 0.05 means that the null hypothesis can be rejected at the 5% significance level.
