Question 7
A medical researcher claims that 6% of children suffer from a certain disorder. Identify the type I error for the test.

 Reject the claim that the percentage of children who suffer from the disorder is equal to 6% when that percentage is actually 6%. Fail to reject the claim that the percentage of children who suffer from the disorder is equal to 6% when that percentage is actually 6%. Reject the claim that the percentage of children who suffer from the disorder is different from 6% when that percentage really is different from 6%. Fail to reject the claim that the percentage of children who suffer from the disorder is equal to 6% when that percentage is actually different from 6%.

Hello

The correct answer is OPTION A.

Type I error, also known as False Positive Error, occurs when null hypothesis is actually true, but is rejected during testing.

Here, null hypothesis will be that 6% children suffer from disorder.

Hence, rejecting the claim that the person suffering from disorder is 6% when its infact 6% is type I error.

I hope this solves your doubt.
