Group of answer choices



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.
