1. The internal auditor suspects that the invoices from a small number of vendors contain serious

population

3. In order to quantify the risk that sample evidence leads to erroneous conclusions about the

sampled population,

of the time

b. The probability is 95% that the true population mean is $150

9. An auditor draws a random sample of 225 items from a population of 10,000 and calculates

the sample standard deviation at $386. Sampling precision is calculated as +/- $50.40 with a

therefore

a. Find it impossible to determine the acceptability of the balance

b. Accept the balance but with a lower level of confidence

c. Take a larger sample before totally rejecting the balance and requiring adjustments

d. Accept the $175,000 balance because the confidence interval is within the materiality limits

variability is the

d. Confidence interval

12. The variability of a population, as measured by the standard deviation, is the

d. Measure of the closeness of a sample estimate to a corresponding population characteristic

13. The auditor can change the standard error of the mean for a statistical sample by

b. Increasing the size of the sample

c. Decreasing the size of the sample

d. All of the above

14. An auditor draws a random sample of invoices and computes the mean invoice amount. The

c. Measure the variability that exists among all possible invoice samples of the same size

d. Perform difference estimation and avoid a large sample

15. In conducting a substantive test of an account balance, an auditor hypothesizes that no

c. Incorrect acceptance

d. Type I error

16. In appraising the results of a statistical sample, the finite population correction factor
