Why does one not divide by the true standard error? Choose the correct answer below. A. Because in real life one almost never knows the value of the population standard deviation B. Because in real life one almost never knows the value of the population mean C. Because this saves time and makes the calculation easier to do D. Because this gives one a more accurate value for the t-statistics. A.
