Step 1

Let four-year colleges be the first sample and the two-year colleges be the second sample.

Option E is correct.

Hypotheses for the test is given below:

Step 2

This test is a right-tailed test.

Test statistic for t-test:

Since population standard deviations are unknown, the appropriate test is two sample t-test.

Here, the sample means of 1st and 2nd samples are 50.8 and 45.9 respectively.

Sample standard deviations of 1st and 2nd samples are 4.3 and 11.4 respectively.

Sample size of 1st and 2nd samples are 24 and 25 respectively.

The pooled standard deviation can be calculated as follows:

The test statistic for t-test is calculated as given below. help_outlineImage Transcriptioncloseх — х, t = Уп, п, 50.8 45.9 4.32 11.42 24 25 = 2.005635 2.01 fullscreen
Step 3

The value of test statistic is 2.5.

Computation of P-value:

The right tailed P-value for the t-test at 47 degrees of freedom is approximately 0.025 whi...
