B) The p-value is equal to .05.
C) The p-value is greater than .05.
D) The p-value cannot be determined without specifying á.



10.
In a left-tailed test at á = .05 we would

A TV special said there is a 10 per cent incidence of sexually transmitted disease (STD) among all U.S. teens. A reporter for the Rockville Bugle, looking for a story, surveyed 260 randomly chosen teenagers, and found that 39 had been to a clinic for STD treatment. Use a right-tail test at á = .05.


11.

C) 2.258
D) .0036



14.
Which of the following statements is correct?
A) For a given level of significance, the critical value of Student's t increases as n increases.
B) A test statistic of t = 2.131 with d.f. = 15 leads to a clear-cut decision in a two-tailed test where á = .05.
C) It is harder to reject the null hypothesis when conducting a two-tailed test rather than a one-tailed test.
D) If we desire á = 0.10 then a p-value of 0.13 would lead us to reject the null hypothesis.

A) John did not commit Type I error.
B) John did not commit Type II error.
C) John committed neither Type I nor Type II error.
D) none of the above can definitely be concluded.
