True or False. Justify for full credit.
(a) If the variance of a data set is zero, then all the observations in this data set are zero. (b)
If P(A) = 0.4 , P(B) = 0.5, and A and B are disjoint, then P(A AND B) = 0.9.
(c) Assume X follows a continuous distribution which is symmetric about 0. If
, then
.
(d) A 95% confidence interval is wider than a 90% confidence interval of the same parameter.
(e) In a right-tailed test, the value of the test statistic is 1.5. If we know the test statistic
follows a Student’s t-distribution with P(T &lt; 1.5) = 0.96, then we fail to reject the null
hypothesis at 0.05 level of significance .

1. True or False. Justify for full credit. (a) If the variance of a data set is zero, then all the observations in this data set are zero. No, all the observations will be same but it is not necessary that all the observations will be zero, because if all the observations are same even then the variance will be zero. (b) If P(A) = 0.4 , P(B) = 0.5, and A and B are disjoint, then P(A AND B) = 0.9. No, because if A and B are disjoint then P(A AND B) = 0. (c) Assume X follows a continuous distribution which is symmetric about 0. If , then . Yes, P(X<-3) will be less than 0.3 because the value will be towards negative side. (d) A 95...
