5. Α ____________ compares the observed frequencies from a multinomial experiment with

expected frequencies derived from a certain pattern or theoretical distribution. The test

evaluates how well the observed frequencies fit the expected frequencies.

A.    Goodness-of-fit test

B.     Chi-square test

C.     Linear regression

6.  The __________ are the frequencies obtained from the performance of a

multinomial experiment. The expected frequencies are the frequencies that we expect to obtain

if the null hypothesis is true.

A.    Observed frequencies

B.     Expected frequencies

C.     Fluctuating frequencies

7. The expected frequency of a category is given by Ε = np where n is the sample size and p is the

probability that an element belongs to that category if the null hypothesis is true. The

________ for a goodness–of–fit test are k – 1, where k denotes the number of possible

outcomes (or categories) for the experiment.

A.    Number of observations

B.     Degrees of freedom

C.     Total population
