Answerd)In the normal distribution, the curve is asymptotic but never intercepts the horizontal axis either to the left or right.e)In the normal distribution, the total area beneath the curve represents the probability for all possible outcomes for a given event.(stdev is not a location.)4. A sample size of “n”, n < 30is drawn from a Non Normal distributionwith mean μand standard deviation σ. By Central limit theorem, the distribution of the sample mean isa) Exactly normal with mean μand variance σ2 /nb) Non normal with mean μand variance σ2 /n Answerc) Approximately normal with mean μand variance σ2 /nd) Non normal with mean μand variance σ2 e) None of the above5. A sample size of “n”, n ≥ 30is drawn from a Non –Normal distributionwith mean μand standard deviation σ. By Central limit theorem, the distribution of the sample mean isa) Exactly normal with mean μand variance σ2 /nb) Non normal with mean μand variance σ2 /nc) Approximately normal with mean μand variance σ2 /n Answerd) Non normal with mean μand variance σ2 e) None of the above6.A point estimate is defined as:a) The average of the sample values (this is an example for point estimate)b) The average of the population valuesc) A single value that is an estimate of an unknown population parameter Answer (This is the definition)d)A single value that is an estimate of an unknown sample statistic7. Two sampling distributions of Z are shown below. Both distributions were generated from the same population. Which sample has a larger sample size ?...
