Step 1

Hello. Since your question has multiple sub-parts, we will solve the first three sub-parts for you. If you want remaining sub-parts to be solved, then please resubmit the whole question and specify those sub-parts you want us to solve.

A.

The null and alternative hypothesis of the test are:

Null hypothesis (Ho) : The drug has no effect.

Alternative hypothesis (H1) : The drug is effective.

Step 2

B.

The significance level is the probability of committing type I error.

In the above case, significance level is 0.05.
