Which one of the following represents the differences between discrete and continuous
random variables?
(Choose 2)
There is no difference between the two at all
Discrete probability of any value of discrete random variable is calculated by the height
of curve at that value. Continuous probability of any value of continuous random variable
cannot be calculated by the height of curve at that value
Both have a finite number of outcomes
The discrete random variable is a qualitative data type while continuous random variable
is a quantitative data type
Countable number of possible outcomes for discrete random variable while uncountable
number of possible outcomes for continuous random variable
