In a study examining the effect of alcohol on reaction time, Liguori and Robinson (2001) found that even moderate alcohol consumption significantly slowed response time to an emergency situation in a driving simulation, In a similar study, researchers measured reaction time 30 minutes alter participants consumed one 6-ounce glass of wine. Again, they used a standardized driving simulation task for which the regular population averages
*M* = 422 for the *n* = 25 participants in the study.

**a.** Are the data sufficient to conclude that the alcohol has a significant effect on reaction time? Use a two-tailed test with

**b.** Do the data provide evidence that the alcohol significantly increased (slowed) reaction time?

Use a one-tailed lest with

**c.** Compute Cohen's *d* to estimate the size of the effect.
