STEP 2: Set the criteria for making a decision. That is, what is your critical value?(1 point)STEP 3: Summarize the data into the appropriate test-statistic.(2 points)STEP 4: Evaluate the null hypothesis(1 point)In a controlled study, more than 70 Dartmouth College students were instructed to use orange-flavored lozenges at the first sign of an incipient cold, sucking on one as often as every two hours. Half the students got zinc lozenges; half the students were given candies that looked and tasted the same, so that none knew who was really taking the zinc.The participants who were given the zinc had a cold for 4.3 days, as against 9.2 days for those who got the look-alike candies31A. What was the dependent variable in this study? (circle one)(1 point)a. type of cold treatmentb. 70 studentsc. number of days cold continuesd. Dartmouth College
31B. What was the independent variable in this study? (circle one)(1 point)
31C. What is the correct analysis for this experiment? (circle one) (1 point)
