Question

# You are reading a scientific paper. In one of the data analyses, the paper's authors report a test statistic

(value ± error) with p = 0.1. What does this p-value indicate?

A. The null hypothesis must be rejected if α = 0.05.

B. We cannot make any conclusions about the data because the data is very poor. Only 10% is worth keeping.

C. Assuming that the null hypothesis is true, there is only a 10% chance that the true value is not within the range of values found by the study.

D. The data fit the least-squares regression line on a scatterplot very poorly.

E. We can have a very high level of confidence in the data. The data is statistically significant to the 100 % confidence level.
