Q:

A record book has 3 confidence intervals listed (2,3) (1,2), and (1.5, 3.) for the samwe parameter. The scientist was told one of them was record from a faulty instrument, the 2nd a 95% confidence interval and the 3rd a 99% confidence interval. But they don't know which is which. Which of the following is true?O (1,2) is 99% CI, (2,3) is 95% CI, (1.5, 3.5) is the errorO (2,3) is 99% CI, (1.5,3.5) is 95% CI, (1,2) is the errorO (2,3) is 95% CI, (2,3) is 95% CI, (1,2) is the errorO (1,2) is 95% CI, (2,3) is 99% CI, (1.5, 3.5) is the error

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:Step-by-step explanation:Given are three confidence intervals as (2,3) (1,2), and (1.5, 3.) If for same data these are confidence intervals, then mid value should be the same(2,3) mid value = 2.5(1,2) mid value = 1.5(1.5,3.5) midvalue = 2.51.5 is very far from other two so (1,2) is wrongOut of other two, 1.5,3.5 is wider. Hence i.e. 99%So correct answer is O (2,3) is 95% CI, (2,3) is 99% CI, (1,2) is the error
