A filling machine in a brewery is designed to fill bottles with 355 ml of hard cider. In practice, however, volumes vary slightly from bottle to bottle. The brewer suspects that the filling machine has been underfilling the bottles. In a sample of 49 bottles, the mean volume of cider is found to be 354 ml, with a standard deviation of 3.5 ml. To determine if the machine is underfilling bottles, the brewer performs a one-sided hypothesis test.
The best formulation of the null hypothesis is:
Source
The true mean cider volume of each bottle is 354 ml.
The true mean cider volume of each bottle is at least 355 ml.
The machine is underfilling the bottles.
The machine is underfilling the bottles by 1 ml.
