Question 1 of 20 The statistic for the F distribution: A.

Question 1 of 20
The statistic for the F distribution:
A. is always positive.
B. is always between 0 and 1.
C. is determined by the degrees of freedom in the denominator and the degrees of freedom in the numerator.
D. Both A and C

Question 2 of 20
The mean rate of return on portfolio A (12 stocks) was calculated to be 11% with a standard deviation of 3.4%. The mean rate of return on portfolio B (10 stocks) was determined to be 12.8% with a standard deviation of 4%. At the .05 significance level:
A. F = 3.02; we can conclude that there is more variation in portfolio B's performance.
B. F = 1.38; we cannot conclude that there is more variation in portfolio B's performance.
C. F = 3.02; we cannot conclude that there is more variation in portfolio B's performance.
D. F = 0.62; we cannot conclude that there is more variation in portfolio B's performance.

Question 3 of 20
To conduct an experiment comparing more than two treatments:
A. we should use separate t tests because there is a smaller likelihood of computational error.
B. we should use ANOVA to reduce the possibility of a type II error.
C. we should use ANOVA to reduce the possibility of a type I error.
D. None of the above

What is the decision rule?
A. Reject the null hypothesis if F > 5.42
