    See attached data file.

    Use the Current Sample "A" 51 stocks (the current price) and Old Sample "A" (the price for one year ago) to calculate a paired test to determine if there has been a significant change in these stock values in the last year. Explain in detail why this paired test would be appropriate for these data, but not appropriate for comparing (Current Sample "A" with a Current Sample "B" (which is not old prices)) - in which a Hypothesis test was used?
