QNT 561 Final Exam.

P.S. Your questions will be chosen randomly from a large set of questions. Nobody can guarantee that these questions will cover completely your exam. If I helped you please leave “A” feedback (I need it very much). Thank you and good luck.

TRUE/FALSE: Mark the answers by circling T if the statement is true or F if the statement is false.

T F Q1: The number of individuals in a family is a continuous variable.

T F Q2: T-distributions are spread out more than a normal distribution with MU = 0, SIGMA = 1.

T F Q3: A random sample of 64 cars passing a check point on a certain highway showed a mean speed of 60 mph. The standard deviation of speeds is known to be 15 mph. In this case 60 mph is a point estimate of the population mean speed on this highway.

T F Q4: According to the Central Limit Theorem, the shape of the sampling distribution of sample mean (given that n ≥ 30) will be normal, whether or not the shape of the population is normal.

T F Q5: If the sample size is large (n ≥ 30), the standard deviation of the sample mean will equal the population standard deviation for that random variable.

T F Q6: Level of confidence is another name for level of significance.

T F Q7: If we would reject a null hypothesis at the 5% level, we would also reject it at the 1% level.

T F Q8: A Type I error is committed when one accepts the null hypothesis when it is false.

T F Q9: In a one-way ANOVA, when the null hypothesis is false, the calculated F-ratio would exceed the critical value of F for the chosen significance level.

T F Q10: Rejection of a hypothesis using a nonparametric test is more convincing than using an equivalent parametric test when the data are badly skewed.

T F Q11: Most nonparametric tests assume ordinal data.

T F Q12: One of the assumptions of regression analysis is that the error terms are normally distributed.

MULTIPLE CHOICE: Select the correct answer in each of Questions 11 to 25. There is only one correct answer to each question.

Q13: What area under the standard normal curve falls outside the Z values -1.96 and 1.96?

a. 0.05

Q19: In finding confidence intervals for the mean of a normal population by using a t-statistic, student A uses a confidence coefficient of 0.95 while student B uses 0.99. Which one of the following statements is true about the length of the confidence intervals found by A and B?

a. B's interval will always be smaller than A's interval

b. B's interval will usually be smaller than A's interval

c. B's interval will always be larger than A's interval

d. B's interval will usually be larger than A's interval

Q20: We know the mean MU of a population. Suppose 1,000 samples of size n are drawn from this population. For each sample we compute a 90% confidence interval for MU. We would expect the mean of the population would NOT be contained within approximately how many of these intervals?

a. 0

b. 10
