1. In a game of four-handed Hearts, all 52 cards of a standard deck are dealt, so that each player starts each round with 13 cards in a hand. Suppose player A’s hand has three clubs, six diamonds, two hearts, and two spades. What is the relative frequency of spades, rounded to two decimal places, dealt to player A?
0.25
1.5
0.75

equal to $110,000
not equal to $110,000

10. To make tests of hypotheses about more than two population means, we use the:
chi-square distribution
t distribution
analysis of variance distribution
normal distribution
11. A linear regression:
gives a relationship between two variables that cannot be described by a line
gives a relationship between two variables that can be described by a line
contains only two variables
gives a relationship between three variables that can be described by a line
12. A continuous random variable x has a right-skewed distribution with a mean of 80 and a standard deviation of 12. The sampling distribution of the sample mean for a sample of 50 elements taken from this population is:
not normal
skewed to the right
approximately normal
skewed to the left
13. Two paired or matched samples would imply that:
two data values are collected from the same source (elements) for two independent samples
data are collected on two variables from the elements of two independent samples
two data values are collected from the same source (elements) for two dependent samples
data are collected on one variable from the elements of two independent samples

14. We can use the analysis of variance procedure to test hypotheses about:
two or more population means
two or more population proportions
the proportion of one population
the mean of one population

15. Two events are independent if the occurrence of one event:
does not affect the probability of the occurrence of the other event.
means that the second event cannot occur.
affects the probability of the occurrence of the other event.
means that the second event is certain to occur.

16. The p-value is the:
smallest significance level at which the null hypothesis can be rejected
largest significance level at which the null hypothesis can be rejected
smallest significance level at which the null hypothesis cannot be rejected
largest significance level at which the alternative hypothesis can be rejected
17. The p-value is the:
smallest significance level at which the null hypothesis can be rejected

smallest significance level at which the null hypothesis cannot be rejected

18. A sample of 16 from a population produced a mean of 86.9 and a standard deviation of 14.3. A sample of 18 from another population produced a mean of 75.4 and a standard deviation of 15.9. Assume that the two populations are normally distributed and the standard deviations of the two populations are equal. The null hypothesis is that the two population means are equal, while the alternative hypothesis is that the mean of the first population is greater than the man of the second population. The significance level is 1%.

a false null hypothesis is rejected
a false null hypothesis is not rejected

20. In a survey regarding job satisfaction 574 in a sample of 934 female job-holders stated that they are satisfied with their jobs, while 500 in a sample of 755 male job-holders stated that they are satisfied with their jobs. The null hypothesis is that the proportions of all female and male job-holders who are satisfied with their jobs are the same. The alternative hypothesis is that the proportion of female job-holders who are satisfied with their jobs is lower than the proportion of male job-holders stated who are satisfied with their jobs. The significance level is 2.5%.
What is the critical value of z for the hypothesis test?
-2.33
-1.96
-2.05
-2.17

21. In a one-way ANOVA, we analyze only one:
variable
mean
population
sample
22. A qualitative variable is the only type of variable that:
can assume an uncountable set of values
can assume numerical values
cannot be graphed
cannot be measured numerically

23. For a one-tailed test, the p-value is:
the area under the curve to the same side of the value of the sample statistic as is specified in the alternative hypothesis
the area under the curve between the mean and the observed value of the sample statistic
twice the area under the curve to the same side of the value of the sample statistic as is specified in the alternative hypothesis
twice the area under the curve between the mean and the observed value of the sample statistic

24. The alternative hypothesis is a claim about a:
parameter, where the claim is assumed to be true if the null hypothesis is declared false
parameter, where the claim is assumed to be true until it is declared false
statistic, where the claim is assumed to be true if the null hypothesis is declared false
statistic, where the claim is assumed to be false until it is declared true
