Step 1
The Chi-square test can be used for checking the association between categorical variables. The test can be used to decide whether the effect of one categorical data is dependent on the other variable or not on the basis of the critical value and p-value. The expected frequency of each categorical variable is calculated to computed the test statistic.
Step 2
So, the chi-square test tells us which categories of one variable are associated with which categories of the other variable. Therefore, the option (d) is considered correct here.

So called "dating" apps like Tinder and Grindr have become known to many as “hook-up" apps. You want to know if people using these apps for "dating" or "hook-ups" is significantly different by gender-identity. You survey 200 users of Tinder to get data on their gender-identity and if they are on the app for dating/looking for a relationship or hook-ups/not looking for a relationship. Is there an association between gender and goals motive for using Tinder?

a. A researcher is interested in determining if there is a relationship between handedness and penmanship. To study this question, the researcher submitted samples from 100 students to penmanship experts. The samples were rated to be of low, medium or high penmanship quality. The observed frequencies were totaled according to left verses right handedness.

A researcher obtains a negative value for the chi-square statistic in a chi-square goodness of fit test. What can a researcher conclude based on this result?
choices:
The observed frequencies are consistently larger than the expected frequencies.
The expected frequencies are consistently larger than the observed frequencies.
There are large differences between the observed and expected frequencies.
The researcher made a mistake because a chi-square value cannot be negative.
