Solution Preview

A formal hypothesis testing approach can be used for non parametric tests only if the sample size is large ( bigger than 30). This is due the central limit theorem: If the sample size is big, then the distribution is approximately normal. Otherwise, we need to carry out non parametric tests.

a) A parametric test is a test that requires a ...
