A new company is in the process of evaluating its customer service. The company offers two types of sales: 1. Internet sales; 2. Store sales. The marketing research manager believes that the Internet sales are more than 10% higher than store sales. The alternative hypothesis for this problem would be stated as: A. Pinternet- Pstore> 0 B. Pinternet- Pstore< 0 C. Pinternet- Pstore ≥ 0 D. Pinternet- Pstore ≤ .10 E. Pinternet- Pstore > .10 AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Comprehension Difficulty: Medium Learning Objective: 5 Topic: Two independent population proportions 28. If the Z statistic (critical value) is incorrectly used in lieu of the t statistic when comparing two means from independent populations using small samples, the chance of rejecting the null hypothesis __________.

In testing the difference between two means from two normally distributed independent populations, the distribution of the difference in sample means will be: A. Normally distributed only if sample sizes are equal. B. Normally distributed only if both population standard deviations are known. C. Normally distributed. D. Normally distributed if both sample sizes are very large. E. Normally distributed only if both population variances are equal.
