Answer key for the midterm in 2007 1.) The sample correlation of e t and x t is always zero in OLS because from the normal equation ! t ± 1 T e t x t ± 0. 2.) When E ± // U   ± @ 2 V ± X   , premultiply the regression model by P " 1 where V ± X   ± PP U .Then E ± / ±/ ± U   ± @ I T where / ± ± P " 1 / . Therefore, the transformed regression model satisfies all the assumptions for Gauss-Markov Theorem. 3.) a.) As x t / t is a martingale difference sequence, E ± x t / t | x t " 1 / t " 1 , T , x 1 / 1   ± 0 , E ± x t / t   ± 0 by the law of iterated expectations. b.) By Ergodic theorem, T " 1 ! x t /
