The score is based on the letter you put in the answer space) 1. A random sample of size n=9 is taken from a normal distribution with mean 15 and variance 25. What is the probability that the sample variance is greater than 5.16? a. >.995 b. <.005 c. .01 d. .99 Answer: __________ 2. What is the probability, P(t), that |t v=10 | < 1.0? a. P(t)<0.2 b. 0.2<P(t)<0.5 c. 0.5<P(t)<0.8 d. P(t)>0.8 Answer: __________ 3. The Bureau of Meteorology of the Australian Government provided the mean annual rainfall (in millimeters) in Australia 1983–2002 as follows 499.2, 555.2, 398.8, 391.9, 453.4, 459.8, 483.7, 417.6, 469.2, 452.4, 499.3, 340.6, 522.8, 469.9, 527.2, 565.5, 584.1, 727.3, 558.6 If one wants to construct a 99% confidence interval for the mean annual rainfall, the statistics needed is: a. t 0.025, 18 b.

4 of 10 d. 5.0 2.5 0.0 -2.5 -5.0 Boxplot 5. If the normal probability plot is obtained below, what type of distribution does it indicate? a. Light-tailed distribution b. Normal distribution c. A distribution with right skew d. Heavy-tailed distribution Answer: __________
5 of 10 Part II True/False Problems: please circle one correct answer (3 points each, total 15 points) 1 . Box plots can be used to simultaneously display several feature of a sample, such as center, spread, departure from symmetry, and identification of outliers. True False 2 . If the Chi-squared statistic is equal to the sum of the squares of k standard normal random variables, then the statistic has k-1 degrees of freedom. True False 3 . Maximum likelihood estimators are usually preferred to the method of moments because they are asymptotically normal and efficient. True False 4 . Assume that X is a distribution with mean μ and variance σ x 2 . If we transform the data as Y=X+5, then σ y 2 > σ x 2 . True False 5 . The sample standard deviation, s, is an unbiased measure of the population standard deviation, σ . True False
