Though the chain rule for relative entropy is derived independently,it is not as widely used(or has practical implications) as the mutual information or entropy. So the order would be 1 chain rule for H ( X 1 , X 2 . . . X n ) 2 chain rule for I ( X 1 , X 2 . . . X n ; Y ) 3 chain rule for D ( p ( x 1 . . . x n )  q ( x 1 . . . x n )) 2.2 Part b Clearly Jenson’s inequality is the strongest,then we have relative entropy following mutual in formation. This is because,we derive the fact that I ( X ; Y ) ≥ 0 by rewriting it as D ( p ( x, y )  p ( x ) p ( y )). So the order is 1 Jenson’s inequality 2 D ( f  g ) ≥ 3 I ( X ; Y ) ≥ 3 Entropy of Missorted file Let X be any permutation of the numbers 1 , 2 . . . n we can easily observe the following distri bution P ( X ) = 1 n 2 Case I..if X(i)=j and X(j)=i and X(k)=k for k 6 = i, k 6 = j,  i j  &gt; 1 2 n 2 Case II..if X(i)=j and X(j)=i and X(k)=k for k 6 = i, k 6 = j,  i j  = 1 1 n Case III..if X(k)=k for all k Imagine we have n numbers placed in a row and there are n+1 dots surrounding it. simply speaking ( dot )1( dot )2( dot )3 . . .
