r is significant because it is between the positive and negative critical values.

r is not significant because it is between the positive and negative critical values.

r is significant because it is not between the positive and negative critical values.

r is not significant because it is not between the positive and negative critical values.

Step 1

It is given that sample size (n) is 82, and r is -0.974.

Thus,

The degree of freedom (df) is:

Step 2

Assume that level of significance is 0.05.

The...
