C. in a random sample from the population of interest. D. in a parameter from the population of interest. Answer: C 7. Suppose [l,u] is a 100(1‐α)% confidence interval for the parameter θ. At the same time, we consider the test of size α with the hypothesis H : θ θ and H : θ θ . Which one of the following is true? [2 points] ISyE2028A, Fall 2010 A. We will reject the H if and only if θ is not in the 100(1‐α)% confidence interval [l,u]. B. We will reject the H if and only if θ is in the 100(1‐α)% confidence interval [l,u]. C. We can not make any decision, because there is no enough information. Answer: A 8. Suppose [l,u] is a 100(1‐α)% confidence interval for the parameter θ. At the same time, we consider the test of size α with the hypothesis H : θ θ and H : θ θ . Which one of the following is true? [2 points] A. We can not make any decision, because there is no enough information. B. We will reject the H if and only if θ is not in the 100(1‐α)% confidence interval [l,u]. C.
