PART A [Do any 4 questions of the 5 provided in this part] 1. Suppose that we have four competing probability functions { f θ | θ =1 , 2 , 3 , 4 } for a certain random variable X distributed on X = { 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 } f 1 ± 12345 1 / 15 2 / 15 5 / 15 4 / 15 3 / 15 ² ,f 2 ± 1 / 15 4 / 15 3 / 15 2 / 15 5 / 15 ² f 3 ± 6 / 15 2 / 15 2 / 15 2 / 15 3 / 15 ² 4 ± 1 / 15 9 / 15 2 / 15 2 / 15 1 / 15 ² a) For θ = 2, what is the variance of X ?( i.e. What is var θ X ?) (3) b) Determine the maximum likelihood estimator as a function ³ θ : X -→ Θ.
