Question

The last post I think has a wrong answer involved but everything I put in bold are the answers I plugged in but only received 86%

A report says that 82% of British Columbians over the age of 25 are high school graduates. A survey of randomly selected residents of a certain city included 1290 who were over the age of 25, and 1135 of them were high school graduates. Does the city's survey result provide sufficient evidence to contradict the reported value, 82%?

**Part i)** What is the parameter of
interest?

**A.** The proportion of 1290 British Columbians (aged
above 25) who are high school graduates.

**B.** All British Columbians aged above 25.

**C. The proportion of all British Columbians (aged above 25)
who are high school graduates.**

**D.** Whether a British Columbian is a high school
graduate.

**Part ii)** Let p be the population proportion of
British Columbians aged above 25 who are high school graduates.
What are the null and alternative hypotheses?

**A. Null: p=0.82Alternative: p>0.82.**

**B.** Null: p=0.88Alternative: p≠0.82

**C.** Null: p=0.88 Alternative: p≠0.88

**D.** Null: p=0.88 Alternative: p>0.88

**E.** Null: p=0.82Alternative: p=0.88

**F.** Null: p=0.82Alternative: p≠0.82

**Part iii)** The P-value is less than 0.0001.
Using all the information available to you, which of the following
is/are correct? (check all that apply)

**A.** The observed proportion of British Columbians
who are high school graduates is unusually high if the reported
value 82% is incorrect.

**B.** The observed proportion of British Columbians
who are high school graduates is unusually low if the reported
value 82% is correct.

**C.** The observed proportion of British Columbians
who are high school graduates is unusually low if the reported
value 82% is incorrect.

**D.** Assuming the reported value 82% is incorrect,
it is nearly impossible that in a random sample of 1290 British
Columbians aged above 25, 1135 or more are high school
graduates.

**E. Assuming the reported value 82% is correct, it is nearly
impossible that in a random sample of 1290 British Columbians aged
above 25, 1135 or more are high school graduates.**

**F.** The reported value 82% must be false.

**G. The observed proportion of British Columbians who are
high school graduates is unusually high if the reported value 82%
is correct.**

**Part iv)** Based on the PP-value (less than
0.0001) obtained, at the 5% significance level, ...

**A.** we should not reject the null hypothesis.

**B. we should reject the null hypothesis.**

**Part v)** What is an appropriate conclusion for
the hypothesis test at the 5% significance level?

**A. There is sufficient evidence to contradict the reported
value 82%.**

**B.** There is insufficient evidence to contradict
the reported value 82%.

**C.** There is a 5% probability that the reported
value 82% is true.

**D.** Both A. and C.

**E.** Both B. and C.

**Part vi)** Which of the following scenarios
describe the Type II error of the test?

**A. The data suggest that reported value is correct when in
fact the value is incorrect.**

**B.** The data suggest that reported value is
incorrect when in fact the value is correct.

**C.** The data suggest that reported value is
incorrect when in fact the value is incorrect.

**D.** The data suggest that reported value is correct
when in fact the value is correct.

**Part vii)** Based on the result of the hypothesis
test, which of the following types of errors are we in a position
of committing?

A. Type II error only.

**B.** Neither Type I nor Type II errors.

**C.** Both Type I and Type II errors.

**D. Type I error only.**

Answer #1

type In error is committed when we reject the null hypothesis when it is true.

2)McBeans magazine recently published a news article about
caffeine consumption in universities that claims that 80% of people
at universities drink coffee regularly. Moonbucks, a popular coffee
chain, is interested in opening a new store on UBC campus. After
reading McBeans' article, they will consider opening a store in UBC
if more than 80% of the people in UBC drink coffee regularly. A
random sample of people from UBC was taken, and it was found that
680 out of 810...

(1 point) BlueSky Air claims that at least 80% of its flights
arrive on time. A random sample of 160 BlueSky Air flights revealed
that 115 arrive on time. Do the data provide sufficient evidence to
contradict the claim by BlueSky Air (i.e., you would like to see
whether the percentage of the airline's flight is below what the
airline claims)? Part i) What is the parameter of interest? A. The
proportion of all BlueSky Air flights that arrive on...

Question 15 (1 point)
A USA Today article claims that the proportion of people who
believe global warming is a serious issue is 0.63, but given the
number of people you've talked to about this same issue, you
believe it is less than 0.63. The hypotheses for this test are Null
Hypothesis: p ≥ 0.63, Alternative Hypothesis: p < 0.63. You take
a random sample and perform a hypothesis test, getting a p-value of
