Question 3.Suppose we want to figure out what the biggest magnitude earthquake was in2017, but we are tasked with doing this only with a sample of 500 from the earthquakes table.To determine whether trying to find the biggest magnitude from a sample is a plausible idea,write code that simulates the maximum of a random sample of size 500 from theearthquakestable 5000 times. Assign your array of maximums tomaximums.

1.55. Assessing Gary’s ModelsGames with GaryOur friend Gary comes over and asks us to play a game with him. The gameworks like this:We will flip a fair coin 10 times, and if the number of heads is greater than or equal to5, we win!Otherwise, Gary wins.We play the game once and we lose, observing 1 head.We are angry and accuse Gary ofcheating! Gary is adamant, however, that the coin is fair.Gary’s model claims that there is an equal chance of getting heads or tails, but we do notbelieve him. We believe that the coin is clearly rigged, with heads being less likely than tails.
