Name _______________________ Closed book and notes. 120 minutes. Consider an experiment that chooses a random sample X 1 , X 2 , . . . , X n from a population with cdf F , mean E( X ) = μ , variance V( X ) = σ 2 and median x 0.5 = F 1 (0.5). Let X d denote the sample mean, S 2 = [ Σ i = 1 n ( X i X d ) 2 ] / ( n 1) denote the sample variance, and X ( i ) the i th order statistic. 1. True or false. (2 points each) (a) T F The standard error of a point estimator is its standard deviation. (b) T F A statistic is an event computed from a population. (c) T F A point estimator is a statistic that is used to estimate a population parameter. (d) T F A sample is selected from a population. (e) T F X (1) X ( n ) . (f) T F V( X ) = E[( X − μ X ) 2 ]. (g) T F X d = E( X ). (h) T F The sample size is X 1 + X 2 + ... + X n . (i) T F X (1) E( X ) X ( n ) . (j)
