### Describe in Detail

Ten short-distance runners were put to a rigorous training for two months. Times taken by them to clear 100 metres before and after the training were as follows:

Sl. no. of runner | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 |

Time (in sec) before training | 10.6 | 10.9 | 10.1 | 10.5 | 11.0 | 11.2 | 10.7 | 10.2 | 10.9 | 10.6 |

Time (in sec) after training | 10.1 | 10.7 | 9.9 | 10.0 | 11.1 | 10.9 | 10.6 | 10.3 | 10.5 | 10.8 |

Use Wilcoxon’s paired sample signed rank test to examine at 1 % level if the training was at all effective. (The critical value of Wilcoxon’s statistic at 1 % level of significance for n = 10 is 5)
