Problem 1 : (10pts, 2pt for each question) Please indicate if the statement is true or false. (1) Given the same population, to obtain wider confidence interval for the population mean, we need to increase sample size. ( ) (2) Any outlier is either the maximum or minimum of the data set. ( ) (3) Assume that we have a good point estimate which has continuous distribution. The probability that the point estimate equals to the ture parameter value is 1/2. ( ) (4) If event A and B are independent with P ( B ) 6 = 0 , then P ( A | B ) = P ( B ) . ( ) (5) Given an arbitrary distribution with finite variance, the central limit theorem states that the sample mean will approximately follow a normal distribution. ( )
