Step 1

Hey, since there are multiple subparts posted, we will answer first three parts. If you want any specific part to be answered then please submit that question only or specify the subpart number in your message

a.

The population standard deviation of the difference between the two tests is unknown. Therefore, the difference between the two tests does not follow normal distribution. It will follow student’s t distribution with (n-1) degrees of freedom. n is the sample size.

Step 2

b.

The calculation for the test statistic:

Step 3

The standard deviation of the difference can be found by the EXCEL formula =STDEVA(Values). ...
