suppose the family wise error rate is 0.05, if there are ten levels of one factor but only 5 comparisons are of importance, what would the individual error rate need to be for each of those 5 comparisons?

1. The individual error rate needs to be for each of those 5 comparisons is Option B which is 0.01.
Individual error rate = α/m = 0.05/5 = 0.01
The individual error rate is the most extreme likelihood that at least one correlation will inaccurately infer that the noticed contrast is essentially unique in relation to the invalid speculation.
Individual error rates are careful in all cases. Family error rates are careful with equivalent gathering sizes. Assuming that gathering sizes are inconsistent, the true family error rate for Tukey, Fisher, and MCB will be somewhat more modest than expressed, bringing about moderate certainty spans. The Dunnett family error rates are careful with inconsistent example sizes.
