True or False on ANOVA Tests

TRUE OR FALSE? 1. More variation should be expected between larger samples, which is apparent by the chi-square distribution. 2. A test of independence can be used to determine a cause-and-effect link between the variables being studied. 3. Using the F distribution for a one-way ANOVA, the degrees of freedom for the denominat
