A pharmaceutical company manufacturing pregnancy test kits wants to determine the probability of a woman not being pregnant when the test results indicate pregnancy. It is estimated that the probability of pregnancy among potential users of the kit is 10%. According to the company laboratory test results 1 out of 100 non-pregnant women tested pregnant (false positive). On the other hand, 1 out of 200 pregnant women tested non-pregnant (false negative). A woman has just used the pregnancy test kit manufactured by the company and the results showed pregnancy. What is the probability that she is not pregnant? A. 90% B. 0.9% C. 8.3% D. 91.7% E. 10.85% AACSB: Analytic Skills Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Hard Learning Objective: 2 Topic: Posterior Analysis 37.
