A) Unimodal and symmetric.
B) Bimodal and symmetric.
C) Unimodal and skewed to the left.
D) Unimodal and skewed to the right.


2.The Chi-square distribution, used in the Chi-square test of independence, varies in shape by degrees of freedom. What does it mean when the Chi-square value is small and the p-value is large?
A) As the Chi-square value gets small, the probability value gets large. In this case you fail to reject Ho and believe the events are independent.
B) As the Chi-square value gets small, the probability value gets large. In this case you fail to reject Ho and believe the events are not independent.
C) As the Chi-square value gets small, the probability value gets large. In this case you reject Ho and believe the events are not independent.
D) As the Chi-square value gets small, the probability value gets large. In this case you reject Ho and believe the events are independent.
