Q.5 A management consulting company presents a three-day seminar on project
management to various clients. The seminar is basically the same each time it is
given. However sometimes it is presented to high-level managers, sometimes to
mid-level managers, and sometimes to low level managers. The seminar
facilitators believe evaluation of the seminar may vary with the audience.

Suppose the following data are some randomly selected evaluation scores from
different levels of managers who attended the seminar. The ratings are on a scale
of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest.

High Level Middle Level Low Level

in the evaluations according to manager level. Assume ? = 0.05.
