Questions 1 – 3: Answer the following questions on nonparametric procedures : 1. Which of the following kinds of data can be analyzed with nonparametric procedures? a) normal b) continuous c) ranks d) all of the above 2.

Given that all the necessary assumptions for each test are satisfied, which are more powerful at finding significant differences? a) Nonparametric procedures, since their assumptions are generally easier to satisfy. b) Normal-based procedures, since they take into consideration the shape of the distribution. c) Nonparametric procedures, since their assumptions are generally harder to satisfy. d) Normal-based procedures, since they work for distributions of almost any shape.

Five bags of each brand (which, according to the label, each contained 35.4 grams) were measured with a very accurate scale.

The alternative hypothesis, according to the problem stated above, is that: a) Frito Lays gives you more chips than Golden Flakes b) Frito Lays gives you less chips than Golden Flakes c) Frito Lays gives you either more or less chips than Golden Flakes d) Golden Flakes gives you more chips than the amount stated on the label 6. The bags that contained 35.9 grams will receive a rank of: a) 4 b) 4.5 c) 5 d) 5.5 e) 6 7. The p-value for the test was 0 .1164.
