Question

A random sample of 15 college soccer players were selected to investigate the relationship between heart rate and maximal oxygen uptake. The heart rate and maximal oxygen uptake were recorded for each player during a training session. A regression analysis of the data was conducted, where heart rate is the explanatory variable and maximal oxygen uptake is the response variable.
If a 95 percent confidence interval is constructed for the slope of the population regression line, which of the following is a condition that must be checked?
A) The true relationship between heart rate and maximal oxygen uptake is linear.
B) The correlation between heart rate and maximal oxygen uptake is not equal to zero.
C) The confidence interval is not biased.
D) The point (x_,y_) falls on the regression line. The X and Y have a line on top.
E) The slope is not equal to zero.

C) The confidence interval is not biased.

Step-by-step explanation:

When a relationship between two variables is observed the confidence interval should not be biased. If the confidence interval is found to be biased then the observed results will be reliable and accurate. Regression analysis of  heart rate and maximal oxygen uptake is analyzed and the correlation will not be equal to zero. This means there will be some correlation between the two variables.
