# Z-test MCQs with Answers: Interview Questions

In this blog post, you can test your knowledge about Z-test, Z-statistics and related concepts through multiple choice questions (MCQs) and answers. Getting a good understanding of Z-tests, Z-statistics and Z-distribution is of utmost importance for data scientists at large. The following are key concepts around which the MCQs are posted:

• Z-score or Z-statistics concepts
• Estimation of population mean and proportion
• 1-sample Z-test for mean and proportion
