If a two-sided null hypothesis is rejected for a single mean at a given significance level, the corresponding one-sided null hypothesis (i.e., the same sample size, the same standard deviation and the same mean) will _________ be rejected at the same significance level.A. AlwaysB. SometimesC. Never12. A professional basketball player is averaging 21 points per game. He will be retiring at the end of this season. The team has multiple options to replace him. However, the owner feels that signing a replacement is only justified, if he can average more than 22 points per game. Which of the following are the appropriate hypotheses for this problem?A.H0:m£ 21 vs.Ha:m> 21B.H0:m£ 22 vs.Ha:m> 22C.H0:m³ 21 vs.Ha:m< 21D.H0:m³ 22 vs.Ha:m< 2213.
