Discuss or explain what is meant by the word "reliability" In Chapter 1 on  page 1 in the last sentence of Section 1.1 of the text.  Please do not use  statistical definitions of the term "reliability".  We'll get to that later in the  semester.  Instead, think about what you know the word means in common  usage and apply that to what you already know about "information" in the  context of statistics. 2.
