Question

Suppose that, for two populations, the distributions of the variable under consideration have the same shape. Further suppose that you want to perform a hypothesis test based on independent random samples to compare the two population means. If the distributions of the variable are normal, would you use the pooled t-test or the Mann–Whitney test? Explain your answer.
