A) The P—value is between 0 and 1.
B) The P—value represents the probability of obtaining the observed value or one even more extreme.
C) The smaller the Pvalue, the stronger the evidence is against H0. The P—value assumes Ha is true. 11) A researcher claims that less than 20% of American adults are allergic to pollen. In a random sample of 100
