    A company selling home appliances claims that the accompanying instruction manuals are written at a 6th-grade reading level.  An English teacher believes that the true figure is higher and with the help of an AP Stat student runs a hypothesis test.  The student randomly picks one page from each of 25 of the company's instructions manuals, and the teacher subjects the pages to a standard readability test.  The reading levels of the 25 pages are given in the following table:   Reading Grade Level 5 6 7 8 9 10 Number of pages 6 10 4 2 2 1 Is there statistical evidence to support the English teacher's belief?
    • A. 

      No, because the p-value is greater than .10

    • B. 

      Yes, the p-value is between .01 and .05 indicating some evidence for the teacher's belief.

    • C. 

      Yes, the p-value is between .001 and .01 indicating strong evidence for the teacher's belief.

    • D. 

      Yes, the p-value is between .05 and .10 indicating strong evidence for the teacher's belief.

    • E. 

      Yes, the p-value is less than .001 indicating strong evidence for the teacher's belief.

    Thirty students volunteer to test which of two strategies for taking multiple-choice exams leads to higher average results.  Each student flips a coin, and if heads, uses Strategy A on the first exam and then Strategy B on the second exam, while if tails, uses Strategy B first and then Strategy A.  The average of all 30 Strategy A result is then compared to the average of all 30 Strategy B results.  What is the conclusion at the 5% significance level if a two-sample hypothesis test, , results in a p-value of .18?
    • A. 

      The observed difference in average scores is significant.

    • B. 

      The observed difference in average scores is not significant.

    • C. 

      A conclusion is not possible without knowing the average scores resulting from using each strategy.

    • D. 

      A conclusion is not possible without knowing the averages scores and the standard deviations resulting from using each strategy.

    • E. 

      A two-sample hypothesis test should not be used here.
