d. will never be tested at the 1% level

12.A population characteristic, such as a population mean, is called:

a. a sample.

b. a statistic.

c. a parameter.

a. Type I.

b. either Type I or Type II, depending on the level of significance.

c. Type II.

d. either Type I or Type II, depending on whether the test is one tail or two tail.
