Comparing answers of a nominal variable- which test should I use?

#1
Hi,

I have asked 64 participants what colour they preffer and I gave 4 possible answers: 1- black; 2 - blue; 3 -red; and 4- yellow.

The scores were: 40 participants answered 1; 10 answered 2; 10 answered 3; and 4 participants answered 4.

I want to know if there is an especific test that could report if the results of 1 (black) for colours are significant.

Thanks

Less is more. Stay pure. Stay poor.

Are you saying that ideally each color should have a 25% chance of selection and you want to test whether those that selected black was statisticallly greater than 25%.

If yes, this could be addressed using a binomial test, with null probability set at 0.25.
