Hi,

Could you please clarify a couple of the questions though?

In #22, the answer choice "A" seems to repeat the question, rather than offfering an answer. Could you check this please?

Question #26 asks "Which of the following statements about the two sample sizes is NOT true?", but it is not clear what samples the question is referring to. Is there more information that goes with this question? Is there a figure or chart of some kind?

Thanks,

Ryan

Hey Ryan,

I believe choice "A" for question 22 is...population parameter

On question 26 I have no idea...if you can't answer then no worries.

Sorry for the confusion.
