For our regressions, we made some assumptions that can generate problems such as:
Error We assumed that N (0, 2 I), i.e. the errors are i.i.d. from N (0, 2 ).

Inference
The obtained parameters have uncertainty.
The least squares estimation assumes that the errors are i.i.d (independent and identically distributed) with mean 0 and variance 2
