Which of the following is a true statement regarding the comparison of the standard normal distribution to the t-distribution? I. The normal distribution is symmetrical whereas the t-distribution is slightly skewed II. The greater the degrees of freedom, the more the t-distribution resembles the standard normal distribution. III. For small n, the t-distribution has wider tails than the standard normal curve. a. I only b. II only c. III only d. II and III e. All of the ab

The following statements are true regarding the comparison of the standard normal distribution to the t distribution.

II. The greater the degrees of freedom the more the t-distribution resembles the standard normal distribution.

Since increasing the degrees of freedom, narrows tails of the curve.

III. For small n the t-distribution has wider tails than the standard normal curve.

Therefore correct choice is d. II and III.

I is False, since t distribution is also symmetric distribution, but have a wider tails.
