Obtain the empirical distribution function (edf) based on the above data. You may either present it as a probability mass function or cumu- lative distribution function in a table, or draw a plot of the cumulative distribution function. [10 points] 2.

4. Find the trimmed mean μ LTS ) from the above data that achieves 20% breakdown value. Justify your answer in one or two sentences. [8 points] 5. Assume that the above data is an i.i.d. sample from a continuous dis- tribution F which has median ( F ) = θ . We want to test the null hypothesis H 0 : θ = 5 against the alternative H 1 : θ n = 5. Obtain the values of the signed rank test statistic and the sign test statistic for the above test. [Hint: First subtract the value of θ under the null hypothesis from each observation.] The formula for both test statistics are given at the end of this exam paper. [10 points]
