Answer a. This is a one tailed test of one proportion and Z = 6.4 b. This is a one tailed test of two proportions and t = 6.4 c. This is a two tailed test of two proportions and Z = 6.4 d.

Answer a. no, F = 1.5 b. no, Z = 1.5 c. no, F = 2.25 d. no, t = 2.25 e. no, F = .44 Question 3 In an opinion survey, a random sample of 1000 adults from the US and 1000 adults from Germany were asked whether they supported the death penalty. 590 American adults and 560 German adults indicated that they did.
