Unformatted text preview: Exam 1 Solutions (1) (a) The joint density of W 1 ,W 2 ,...,W n is f a ( w 1 ,w 2 ,...,w n ) = 1 2 a n n Y i =1 1 {- a ≤ w i ≤ a } = 1 2 a n 1 {- a ≤ min w i ≤ max w i ≤ a } = 1 2 a n 1 { max {| w (1) | , | w ( n ) |}≤ a } , where w (1) = min i w i , and w ( n ) = max i w i . Thus, by the factorization theorem, max( | W (1) | , | W ( n ) | ) = max 1 ≤ i ≤ n {| W i |} is sufficient. Clearly (min W i , max W i ) cannot be minimal, since it cannot be written as a function of max 1 ≤ i ≤ n {| W i |} . (b) ( W (1) ,W ( n ) ) is not complete. To see this, let U i =- W i . Consider U 1 ,U 2 ,...,U n . Then U i ’s are i.i.d. Unif(- a,a ) and note that U (1) =- W ( n ) . So, E U (1) =- E W ( n ) . But U (1) d = W (1) so E U (1) = E W (1) . Thus, E( W (1) + W ( n ) ) = 0 but W (1) + W ( n ) 6 = 0, showing that W (1) + W ( n ) is not complete. (2) (a) By using the tower property of conditional expectation, E Y = E [E [ Y | X ]] = E [ Xθ ] = θ E [ X ] = θ 2 ....
