Name _______________________ Closed book and notes. 60 minutes. 1. True or false. (3 points each) Consider an experiment. Assume that events A and B and random variable X are defined. Recall that denotes the empty set and S denotes the sample space. (a) T F Every replication of the experiment results in one or more outcomes. (b) T F The random variable X assigns a real number to every outcome. (c) T F The random variable is said to "occur" whenever X = x . (d) T F P( B ) = P( A | B ) P( A ) + P( A | B ) P( A ) (e) T F P( A | B ) = 1 P( A | B ). (f) T F P( B | A ) P( A ) = P( A | B ) P( B ). (g) T F If A and B are mutually exclusive, then P( A B ) = P( A ) P( B ). (h) T F The four events ( A B ), ( A B ), ( A B ), and ( A B ) partition the sample space. (i) T F For every replication of the experiment, both A and B occurring is impossible. 2. Consider the HIV/AIDS example. Recall that T ij denotes the event of (not necessarily the first) virus transmission on the j th contact with partner i . Let n i denote the number of contacts with partner i .
