STA 6126 Fall 2004 Exam 2 PRINT NAME __________ 1. Based on responses of 1600 subjects in General Social Surveys in the mid-1980s, a 95% Confidence Interval for the mean number of close friends equals (5.6, 7.2). For each statement, circle the best response: Correct or Incorrect . a) If random samples of 1600 were repeatedly selected and 95% Confidence intervals computed based on each sample, then in the long run 95% of the intervals would contain μ . Correct or Incorrect ? b) We can be 95% confident that Y is between 5.6 and 7.2. Correct or Incorrect ? c) 95% of respondents had between 5.6 and 7.2 close friends. Correct or Incorrect ? d) We can be 95% confident that μ is between 5.6 and 7.2. Correct or Incorrect ? 2. The P -value for testing H 0 : μ =100 vs H A : μ≠ 100 is 0.001 and 100 < Y . This indicates strong evidence that (select the correct answer): a) μ=100 b) μ100 c) μ<100 3. A large-sample 95% confidence interval for μ 1 2 is (-2.0, 7.0). The P -value for testing H 0 : μ 1 2 = 0 vs H A : μ 1 2 0 based on the same sample data is (select the correct answer): a) above 0.05 b) below –0.05 c) below 0.05 d) Need more information 4. Researchers reporting a Z-test to test the alterntative hypothesis that the proportion of males favoring a candidate is larger than the proportion of females favoring the candidate (H A : π M - π F > 0) give a P -value of 0.0643. Their computed test statistic was: a) 0.0643 b) 1.52 c) 1.85 d) 0.9357 e) We need more information
