Practice Questions 6 QUESTIONS 1 THROUGH 3 ARE BASED ON THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION: Let 1 X , 2 X , 3 X , and 4 X be a random sample of observations from a population with mean μ and variance 2 σ . Consider the following two point estimators of μ : 1 ˆ θ = 0.10 1 X + 0.40 2 X + 0.40 3 X + 0.10 4 X and 2 ˆ θ = 0.20 1 X + 0.30 2 X + 0.30 3 X + 0.20 4 X 1. Which of the following is true? A) 1 ˆ θ is biased, but 2 ˆ θ is unbiased estimator of μ . B) 1 ˆ θ is unbiased, but 2 ˆ θ is biased estimator of μ . C) Both 1 ˆ θ and 2 ˆ θ are unbiased estimators of μ . D) Both 1 ˆ θ and 2 ˆ θ are biased estimators of μ . 2. Which of the following is true? 3. Which of the following is true? 4. In a recent survey of 600 adults, 16.4% indicated that they had fallen asleep in front of the television in the past month.
