Which of the following would be an appropriate null hypothesis? a) The mean of a population is equal to 55. b) The mean of a sample is equal to 55. c) The mean of a population is greater than 55. d) Only (a) and (c) are true. ANSWER: a TYPE: MC DIFFICULTY: Easy KEYWORDS: form of hypothesis 2. Which of the following would be an appropriate null hypothesis? a) The population proportion is less than 0.65. b) The sample proportion is less than 0.65. c) The population proportion is no less than 0.65. d) The sample proportion is no less than 0.65. ANSWER: c TYPE: MC DIFFICULTY: Easy KEYWORDS: form of hypothesis 3. Which of the following would be an appropriate alternative hypothesis? a) The mean of a population is equal to 55. b) The mean of a sample is equal to 55. c) The mean of a population is greater than 55. d) The mean of a sample is greater than 55. ANSWER: c TYPE: MC DIFFICULTY: Easy KEYWORDS: form of hypothesis 4. Which of the following would be an appropriate alternative hypothesis? a) The population proportion is less than 0.65. b) The sample proportion is less than 0.65. c) The population proportion is no less than 0.65. d) The sample proportion is no less than 0.65. ANSWER: a TYPE: MC DIFFICULTY: Easy KEYWORDS: form of hypothesis 5. A Type II error is committed when a) we reject a null hypothesis that is true. b) we don't reject a null hypothesis that is true. c) we reject a null hypothesis that is false. 6 Fundamentals of Hypothesis Testing: OneSample Tests d) we don't reject a null hypothesis that is false. ANSWER: d TYPE: MC DIFFICULTY: Easy KEYWORDS: type II error 6. A Type I error is committed when a) we reject a null hypothesis that is true. b) we don't reject a null hypothesis that is true. c) we reject a null hypothesis that is false. d) we don't reject a null hypothesis that is false. ANSWER: a TYPE: MC DIFFICULTY: Easy KEYWORDS: type I error 7. The power of a test is measured by its capability of a) rejecting a null hypothesis that is true. b) not rejecting a null hypothesis that is true. c) rejecting a null hypothesis that is false. d) not rejecting a null hypothesis that is false. ANSWER: c TYPE: MC DIFFICULTY: Easy KEYWORDS: power 8. If we are performing a twotailed test of whether μ = 100, the probability of detecting a shift of the mean to 105 will be ________ the probability of detecting a shift of the mean to 110. a) less than b) greater than c) equal to d) not comparable to ANSWER: a TYPE: MC DIFFICULTY: Moderate KEYWORDS: power 9. True or False: For a given level of significance, if the sample size is increased, the power of the test will increase....
