    Answer: Choice A) A true null hypothesis is rejected

    In other words, if the reality is that the null is true but your research says otherwise, then you've committed a type i error.

    A type ii error is when you fail to reject the null (basically "accepting" the null) while in reality the alternative is the true hypothesis.
