a. State the null and alternative hypotheses for the Kruskal-Wallis test.
b. Identify the value of the test statistic for the Kruskal-Wallis test, and state its approximate sampling distribution, presuming H0 is true.
c. Report and interpret the P-value shown for the Kruskal-Wallis test.
d. To find out which pairs of groups significantly differ, how could you follow up the Kruskal-Wallis test?
