# Make a decision about the given claim. Use only the rare event rule, and make subjective estimates to determine whether events are likely. For example, if theclaim is that a coin favors headss and sample results consist of 11 heads in 20 flips, conclude that there is not sufficient evidence to support the claim that thecoin favors hes (because it is easy to get 11 heads in 20 flips by chance with a fair coin).Claim: The mean age of students in a large statistics class is less than 32. A simple random sample of the students has a mean age of 18.5O A. The sample is unusual if the claim is true. The sample is not unusual if the claim is false. Therefore, there is not sufficient evidence to support the claimB. The sample is not unusual if the claim is true. The sample is unusual if the claim is false. Therefore, there is not sufficient evidence to support the claimO c. The sample is not unusual if the claim is true. The sample is unusual if the claim is false. Therefore, there is sufficient evidence to support the claim.O D. The sample is unusual if the claim is true. The sample is not unusual if the claim is false. Therefore, there is sufficient evidence to support the claim.
