1. True or False. Justify for full credit. (15 pts)
(a) If the variance of a data set is zero, then all the observations in this data set are zero.
(b) If P(A) = 0.4 , P(B) = 0.5, and A and B are disjoint, then P(A AND B) = 0.9.
(c) Assume X follows a continuous distribution which is symmetric about 0. If , then .
(d) A 95% confidence interval is wider than a 90% confidence interval of the same parameter.
(e) In a right-tailed test, the value of the test statistic is 1.5. If we know the test statistic follows a
Student?s t-distribution with P(T &lt; 1.5) = 0.96, then we fail to reject the null hypothesis at 0.05 level of
significance .

There are 1000 students in a high school. Among the 1000 students, 800 students have a laptop, and 300
students have a tablet. 250 students have both devices.
11. What is the probability that a randomly selected student has neither device? (10 pts)
12. What is the probability that a randomly selected student has a tablet, given that he/she has a laptop?
(5 pts) 13. Let event A be the selected student having a laptop, and event B be the selected student having a
tablet. Are A and B independent events? Why or why not? (5 pts)

ways can a sequence of three numbers be selected? (Show work) (5 pts)
15. Let Let random variable x represent the number of heads when a fair coin is tossed three times.
Show all work. Just the answer, without supporting work, will receive no credit.

16. Mimi just started her tennis class three weeks ago. On average, she is able to return 25% of her
opponent?s serves. Assume her opponent serves 10 times.
(a) Let X be the number of returns that Mimi gets. As we know, the distribution of X is a binomial
probability distribution. What is the number of trials (n), probability of successes (p) and
probability of failures (q), respectively? (5 pts)
(b) Find the probability that that she returns at least 1 of the 10 serves from her opponent.
