1. Introduction (15 points): In the introduction section, summarize research findings that label “body art” either deviant or just personal expression. Does the research indicate a difference between those who are breaking a norm and those who are part of a subculture? What reasons are given for this behavior? Use a minimum of 3 scholarly resources in your research.
2. Methods (5 points): For your methods section, you are to interview a minimum of 4 people in each of the two following categories: 4 people who have body piercing/tattoos and 4 people who do not. In addition to asking why people chose body art or not, ask many of the following questions:
• What do you think of this behavior?
• What is the line between acceptable body adornment and behaviors that cross the line?
• Is there a difference between a woman with pierced ears and a man with pierced ears?
• Is there a difference between one hole in an ear lobe and five holes in an ear lobe?
• Is there a difference between a pierced ear and a pierced eyebrow?
• Is there normal piercing and deviant piercing? Is there a subculture of piercing?
• If there is deviant piercing, does this behavior in an individual link them to other deviant subcultures?
• Is this behavior in this culture any different than enlarged ear lobes, discs in the lips, or bones and feathers in nasal cartilage that are traditionally accepted in some societies?
• Do the responses differ depending on where tattoos are located and what they depict?
Describe who your interview subjects are, and give demographic information such as age, race, and gender.
3. Results (10 points): In your results section, make a table with columns/create a chart showing the differences between how the two groups answered the questions. You do not need to list every question but give an overview of how deviance was described by the two groups. Were there differences based on demographics?
4. Discussion (20 points): Discuss your results to the questions and how these findings match/do not match with the research. Correctly cite and support your analysis and conclusions with your researched findings. What are the implications for faith and the choices people make about body art?

SECTION A (Total 65 marks)
GenXY Motors Pte Ltd sells second hand cars. The company has four shops in different
locations either within or outside of the city area.
Mr. Branson Lim, the general manager of GenXY, would like to expand their business by
adding four more locations. The main objective is to maximise revenue by increasing the
number of cars sold and the prices of transactions. Mr. Lim would like know the followings:
Where should the new locations be?
What make (brand) of cars should they hold in these locations?
What models of cars should they hold in these locations?
What features should be built in as standard in these cars?
What features should be added optionally?

Mr. Lim came across a study done by the Car Dealers Association (CDA) on sales of cars in
year 2012. The sample had 1000 transactions randomly selected from car dealers in the
country. The sample proportions for make, model and locations are similar to those of the
population. Mr. Lim speculates that this study could help him to address the above questions
but he is not sure how to interpret this study. Mr. Lim has engaged you as a consultant to help
and has provided you an excel file “cars_dataset.xlsx” with this random sample of 1000
transactions. The variables in the data are:
CarID: Autogenerated ID of transactions in the sample
Price$: Price of car sold in Singapore Dollars
Mileage: Number of kilometres completed
MakeID: Numeric ID of the make (or brand) of the car
Make: Make (or brand) of the car
ModelID: NumericID of the model of the car
Model: Model of the car which briefly describes the main features of the car
Engine Capacity: Size of the engine capacity
Doors: Number of doors in the car
Sound: Sound upgrading; 1 indicates an upgrade and 0 indicates no upgrade
LocationID: Numeric ID of the location
Store Location: Location; 1 indicates within the city and 2 indicates outside of the city

Data  Analytics & Business Intelligence.

QUESTION 1

The AIS collects a v ariety of data on its athletes. In one publically-av ailable data set, measurements were made on 202

athletes of v arious body and blood characteristics. The sum of skin folds (ssf), a measure of bodyfat,was recorded. Interest is at the
moment turning to extracting intelligence about the relationship between ssf and pbfat.

(a) What isthe correlation between ssf and

pbfat?

(b) Explain what yourvalue ofthe correlation means in one ortwo sentences.

(c) Write down the equation of the regression

line relating ssf (a fairly simple measure to take) to pbfat (a much more complex measure to take).

(d) Explain what your value ofthe

intercept means in one or two sentence s.

(e) Explain what yourvalue ofthe slope means in one ortwo sentences.

QUESTION 2 10

marks

(a) What isthe predicted percentage of pbfat for a ssf of 70?

(b) Carry out a hypothesistest to check whetherthere is

evidence in the sample of a non-zero slope for the line relating ssfto pbfat. Your answer should include null and alternative hypotheses,
test statrstrc,p-value and conclusion.

(c) Write down a 95% confidence interval for the slope forthe line relating ssf to pbfat in all

athlete s.

(d) Explain what the confidence interval in (e) means in one or two sentence s.

(e) Produce a scatter plot of residuals

versus predicted values. Use the plot to comment on whether the re gressron Inference conditions of constant v ariance and no strong outliers
hav e been met by this data set.

QUESTION 3 10 marks

Coaches would now like to extract intelligence about whetherthere is evidence

of a difference in average haematocrit levels (a blood marker, denoted hc) between male and female athletes, on the basis of the data
collected.

(a) Write down the null and alternativ e hypothesesforthe researchers.

(b) Why should this be an independent-samplestest

and not a parre d-samplestest? Answer o one or two sentence s.

(c) Use R to find the v alue of the test statistic, and the p-value, for

this test.

(d) At the 5% level, isthe null hypothesis rejected or not? Explain your answer in one ortwo sentences.

(e) Write a conclusion to the test for the researchers.

QUESTION 4 10 marks

The relationship between sport and gender is also of interest.

Use R to carry out a chi-squared test for the researchers. Your answer should include null and alternative hypothesis, a test statistic, p
value, decision and conclusion that can be reported to the researchers.

QUESTION 5

Sports managers are interested in whether ssf depends ont e sport the athletes play.

(a) Produce a well-labelled boxplot of ssf by sport.

(b) Calculate the mean and the standard deviation of the tennis players’ ssf. Compare the location and spread of the ten sports in a short paragraph.

(c) Check whether the condition of equal standard deviations between the ten groups has been met. Your answer should include some calculations.

(d) Use an ANOVAto test the hypothesis of no difference in mean ssf between the five sports. Your answer should include a null and alternative
hypothesis, test statistic, p value and conclusion. Use a= 0.0
