Multiple Choice
Identify the letter of the choice that best completes the statement or answers the question.
Each question is worth 2 points,
1, In hypothesis testing, the tentative assumption about the population parameter is
a. the alternative hypothesis
CD the null hypothesis
c. either the null or the alternative
d. None of these alternatives is correct.
to
The p-value is a probability that measures the support (or lack of support) for the
@& null hypothesis
b. alternative hypothesis
c. either the null or the alternative hypothesis
d. sample statistic
3. The p-value
a. is the same as the Z statistic
b, measures the number of standard deviations from the mean
c. is adistance
(& isa probability
4. In hypothesis testing if the null hypothesis is rejected,
a. no conclusions can be drawn from the test
the alternative hypothesis is true
c. the data must have been accumulated incorrectly
d. the sample size has been too small
5. The level of significance is the
a. maximum allowable probability of Type II error
(© maximum allowable probability of Type I error
¢. same as the confidence coefficient
d. same as the p-value
6. The error of rejecting a true null hypothesis is
e a Type I error
. a Type IJ error
c. is the same as B
d. committed when not enough information is available

8. A soft drink filling machine, when in perfect adjustment, fills the bottles with 12 ounces of soft drink. Any
over filling or under filling results in the shutdown and readjustment of the machine. To determine whether
or not the machine is properly adjusted, the correct set of hypotheses is
a. Ho: p< 12 Hy: p< 12
b. Ho: ps 12 Hy: we > 12
c. Ho pel2 Hy p=l2
Ho: w= 12 Hy: p 4 12

a. will always be rejected at the 1% level
b. will always be accepted at the 1% level
c. will never be tested at the 1% level

side of the page if needed).
26. {15 points}A national automobile association has claimed that the average price for a gallon of
gasonline was $2.75. Suppose you wish to test this claim and subsequently undertook a survey to
collect data on the price of gasonline. The following are the summary statistics resulting from the
survey:
