Chi-square tests are nonparametric tests that examine nominal categories as opposed to numerical values. Consider a situation in which you may want to transform numerical scores into categories. Provide a specific example of a situation in which categories are more informative than the actual values.

Step 1
Chi-square tests are nonparametric tests that examine nominal categories as opposed to numerical values.
Step 2
In ANOVA, we have two or more group means that we have to compare. In Chi square test, we have two categorical variables and want to determine whether one variable is related to the other variable.
Suppose, we had conducted an ANOVA, with individuals grouped by political affiliation(Republican, Democrat and other) and we were interested in how satisfied they were with the current administration. Satisfaction was measured on a scale of1-10, so it was measured on a continuous scale.
For instance, rather than looking at test scores as a range from 0 to 10, you could change the variable to low, medium or high. so that it becomes categorical, thus amenable for Chi square test.
Here, non parametric test is the better option for this hypothesis since data are not given as normally distributed and the non-parametric test which is distribution free is applicable here.

In testing to see whether opinion with respect to the use of instant replay is independent of the category of the person interviewed, a chi-square test statistic of 27.99 and a p-value less than 0.001 were calculated. Which of the following statements is correct?
a. The number of degrees of freedom for the test is 8 - 1 = 7.
b. The chi-square test should not have been used because two of the counts in the table are less than 5.
c. The null hypothesis states that there is an association between category and opinion about the use of instant replay, and the small p-value suggests that the null hypothesis should be rejected.
d. The small p-value suggests that there is evidence of an association between category and opinion about the use of instant replay.
e. The chi-square test shows that fans favor the use of instant replay.
