Saved Which of the following statements is FALSE about polynomial regression? Increasing the polynomial degree d can lead to overfitting. Polynomial regression should be used to generate predictions only inside the observed range of the predictors. Polynomials lead to a highly non-local fit. Polynomial regressions are preferable to regression splines because polynomial regressions are more flexible and stable. QUESTION 8 6 points Saved Saved Which of the following is NOT an example of nonlinear model? K-nearest neighbours Smoothing splines Local linear regression Ridge regression Local quadratic regression QUESTION 9 7 points Saved Saved The logistic regression model specifies a linear model for the log odds. True False QUESTION 10 3 points Saved Saved The difference between a linear discriminant analysis (LDA) and a quadratic discriminant analysis (QDA) lies in the following: QDA uses Bayes' theorem to calculate the conditional probability of Y given X=x, while LDA estimates it using the training data QUESTION 11 6 points Saved

LDA assumes that the predictors are normally distributed conditional on the class and QDA makes no assumption on the distribution of the predictors. LDA assumes the classes have a common covariance matrix, instead of a class-specific covariance matrix that is assumed by QDA. LDA fits a linear regression for each class, while QDA fits a quadratic polynomial regression. The Naive Bayes classifier assumes the predictors are conditionally independent given the class label.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
