Question 17


In every experiment there is experimental error. Which of the following statements is true?

Question 18

An aspect of good experimental strategy is to study the effects of the variables (Xs) over a wide range. This strategy increases the chances that effects will be found because:

Question 21


We ran a taste-test to see which soft drink employees in our company prefer. We had 100 employees, selected as randomly as possible, taste test two brands and determine which they preferred. Which of the following would be a reasonable statistical analysis to determine if there is a clear preference among our employees?

Question 22

We are testing the null hypothesis that the average monthly revenue between four insurance offices is the same. We obtained a p-value of .07. Which of the following would be an appropriate conclusion about the population?

Which of the following could be considered a prediction interval?


Question 25

I have made a mistake in copying data into my computer to perform a large regression model with 20 independent variables. Basically, I ended up with random data in each of the columns. However, I accidentally ran the regression anyway. Making reasonable assumptions, which of the following outcomes is most likely?
