### 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 11.2 10.7 10.2 10.9 10.6 Time (in sec) after training 10.1 10.7 9.9 10 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)

### Explanation

In Wilcoxon’s paired sample signed rank test, the null hypothesis that we are sampling two continuous symmetric populations with for the paired-sample case, we rank the differences of the paired observations without regard to sign and proceed as in the single-sample case

Let and represent the median time of all runner put to a r

### Describe in Detail

Describe the run test for randomness. For the sequence of outcomes of 14 tosses of a coin,

HTTHHHTHTTHHTH, .

test whether the outcomes are in random order. (Given the lower and upper critical values R L = 3,

R u = 12 at 0.05 significance level. )

### Explanation

Suppose a sample size n contains n 1 symbols of one type and n 2 symbols of the other type. The null hypothesis is the symbols occur in random order, the alternative is the symbols occur in a set pattern. The lower and upper critical value is obtained from tables. If the observed number of runs in a sample lies in between these critical values, t

### Describe in Detail

For a set of 10 pairs of observations (x i, y j), i = 1 (1) 10, the following calculations are available

Examine at 5 % level of significance if the two variables arc uncorrelated in the population.

### Explanation

First, we calculate the sample correlation coefficient r

for i = 1 to 10

Putting the value in the formula for n = 10

The test hypothesis is

The test statistic is
