The correct ancwer is iv. observational study using nonrandom sample Because if the samples are nonrandom, then the results cant be directly applied to the whole popultion.

Is statistical inference intuitive to babies? In other words, are babies able to generalize from sample to population? In this study,1 8-month-old infants watched someone draw a sample of five balls from an opaque box. Each sample consisted of four balls of one color (red or white) and one ball of the other color. After observing the sample, the side of the box was lifted so the infants could see all of the balls inside (the population). Some boxes had an “expected” population, with balls in the same color proportions as the sample, while other boxes had an “unexpected” population, with balls in the opposite color proportion from the sample. Babies looked at the unexpected populations for an average of 9.9 seconds (\(sd = 4.5\) seconds) and the expected populations for an average of 7.5 seconds (\(sd = 4.2\) seconds). The sample size in each group was 20, and you may assume the data in each group are reasonably normally distributed. Is this convincing evidence that babies look longer at the unexpected population, suggesting that they make inferences about the population from the sample? Let group 1 and group 2 be the time spent looking at the unexpected and expected populations, respectively. A) Calculate the relevant sample statistic. Enter the exact answer. Sample statistic: _____

B) Calculate the t-statistic. Round your answer to two decimal places. t-statistic = ___________

C) Find the p-value. Round your answer to three decimal places. p-value =__________

Iranian researchers studied factors affecting patients’ likelihood of wearing orthodontic appliances, noting that orthodontics is perhaps the area of health care with the highest need for patient cooperation (Behenam & Pooya, 2007). Among their analyses, they compared students in primary school, junior high school, and high school. The data that follow have almost exactly the same means as the researchers found in their study, but with far smaller samples. The score for each student is his or her daily hours of wearing the orthodontic appliance. Did age of students impact how long they wore the orthodontic appliance for? Use alpha of .05.
Primary school: 16,13,18(M=15.67,s=2.52)
Junior high school: 8,13,14,12(M=11.75,s=2.63)
High school: 20,15,16,18(M=17.25,s=2.22)
