Unformatted text preview: item <P20, F, 1.65> using K-Nearest Neighbor algorithm with K=4 and a simple majority voting. To calculate distances between each two records, we are required to consider both Gender and Height attributes . For the gender attribute, assume the following distance functions d(F, F) =d(M, M) = 0; d(F, M)=d(M, F)= 0.2 Using the Manhattan Distance, find the 4 nearest neighbors to the new item, and classify it based on a majority voting. In your solution, specify the neighbors, and calculate the distance between the new item and each neighbor. 1 2...
