Statistics Multiple Choice Questions


I.    Few years ago, the average number of hours worked each week by general practitioners was known to be 49.  A random sample of 29 general practitioners this year gives a mean of 52 hours per week, with a standard deviation of 4.3 hours.  To test if the number of hours worked per week has increased, which of the following hypotheses are correct?

a. H0: μ = 49 vs HA: μ ≠ 49
b. H0: μ = 49 vs HA: μ > 49
c. H0: μ = 49 vs HA: x¯ = 52
d. H0: x¯ = 52 vs HA: x¯ > 52
e. H0: x¯ = 52 vs HA: x¯ ≠ 52

II.    How can you avoid making a Type I error in a hypothesis test?

III.    Suppose a researcher conducts an experiment to test a hypothesis. If he doubles his sample size, which of the following will increase? Explain why?

a. The power of the hypothesis test.
b. The effect size of the hypothesis test.
c. The probability of making a Type II error.

1) (a) only
2) (b) only
3) (c) only
4) all of the above
5) none of the above


These questions belong to Statistics and they are multiple choice questions which deal with the average working hours of general practitioners, doubling the sample size and avoiding Type I error in hypothesis tests.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
