There are seven first-born, six second-born, and seven third born subjects. Each subject is given an assertiveness test, with the following results. High scores indicate greater assertiveness. Assume the data are so far from normally distributed that theFtest can?t be used, but the data are at least of ordinal scaling. Use? =0.01 to evaluate the data. What is your conclusion?;Condition 1;First-Born;Rank;Condition 2;Second-Born;Rank;Condition 3;Third-Born;Rank;18;18;7;8;12;19;4;3;2;21;24;30;28;22;18;32;1;5;10;14;= 7;=;= 6;=;= 7;=;2.A major oil company conducts an experiment to assess whether a fi lm designed to tell the truth about, and also promote more favorable attitudes toward, large oil companies really does result in more favorable attitudes.

In the ?After? condition, the subjects see the film, after which they fi ll out the questionnaire. The following scores were obtained. High scores indicate more favorable attitudes toward large oil companies. Analyze the data using the Wilcoxon signed ranks;test with? =0.05 (1 tail).
