2 Part I. Multiple Choice. 3 marks in each question. No part mark. Circle only one answer . If there are more than one correct answer, circle the best one . 1. Given a sample of 3 observations: 1, 0, -1. The sample variance is (a) 0 (b) 3 2 (c) 1 (d) 3 (e) none of these 2. A sample of 25 observations on the number of cars passing a point on a highway per minute is given as 10, 12, 11, …, 16. Given the following calculations: 10+12+11+…+16=350 and 5764 16 ... 11 12 10 2 2 2 2 = + + + + The sample standard deviation is equal to (a) 6 (b) 14 (c) 25 (d) 36 (e) none of these 3. A department of transportation’s study on driving speed and mileage for midsize cars resulted in the following sample data, where x = driving speed, and y = mileage. Some calculations are also given. x y x x () 2 x x y y () 2 y y () () y y x x 30 28 -12 144 1 1 -12 50 25 8 64 -2 4 -16 40 25 -2 4 -2 4 4 55 23 13 169 -4 16 -52 30 30 -12 144 3 9 -36 25 32 -17 289 5 25 -85 60 21 18 324 -6 36 -108 25 35 -17 289 8 64 -136 50 26 8 64 -1 1 -8 55 25 13 169 -2 4 -26 Total 420 270 0 1660 0 164 -475 The sample correlation coefficient between x and y is closest to (a) – 0.3721 (b) – 0.5122 (c) – 0.6102 (d) – 0.8124 (e) – 0.9104 4.

If the distribution of the time spent on watching television has a bell shape distribution. The percentage of children watches television between 2 and 5 hours is (a) at least 55.5% (b) at least 75% (c) at least 81.5% (d) approximately 75% (e) approximately 81.5% 6. Let A and B be two events, 3 . 0 ) ( = A P and 4 . 0 ) ( = B P . Which one of the following statements is always true? (a) If
