### Describe in Detail

If the probability for n independent events are p 1, p 2, …, p n, then prove that:

(i) none of the events will occur

(ii) at least one event will occur

(iii) at most one event will occur;

### Explanation

Let A 1 , A 2, …, A n, n independent events with probabilities p 1, p 2, …, p n.

(i) Find the probability that none of the events will occur

Since events are independent and the probability that one event does not occur is 1-p

So, none of the events will occur

(ii) Find the probability that at least one event will occur is

(iii) …

### Describe in Detail

Name two non-parametric tests for comparing locations of two correlated populations.

### Explanation

The Wald-Wolfowitz runs test and Mann-Whitney U-test comparing locations of two correlated populations. Let the sample 1 consider the population X and sample 2 consider the population Y. The hypothesis whether two sample comes from same identical population. We test the following null and alternative hypothesis is

### Describe in Detail

The values of two random samples are arranged below in an increasing order with X denoting the value of sample I and Y denoting the value of sample 2:

XXXYXYYYYXXYXXXYXXYYY

Use Wald-Wolfowitz run test to test whether the two samples may be regarded as coming from a common population.

### Explanation

Wald-Wolfowitz run test uses the data of two random samples, sample 1 is X variables of size n = 11 and sample 2 is Y variables of size m = 10 from two population F X (x) and F Y (y) respectively.

The hypothesis under the test is that the null hypothesis is the two population are identical otherwise the alternative is the population is differ.

### Describe in Detail

Show that convergence in probability implies convergence in distribution.

### Explanation

The sequence X n converges to X in probability if for any ε > 0

The sequence X n converges to the distribution of X as n tends to infinity if

For ε > 0,

Hence

……… (1)

Note that

…. (2)

From equation (1) and (2)

Taking n tends to infinity

If ε tends to zero,

This shows that

### Describe in Detail

A die is rolled twice. Let A, B, C denote the events respectively that the sum of scores is 6, the sum of scores is 7, and the first score is 4. Are A and C independent? Are B and C independent?

### Explanation

A die is rolled twice, the sample space consists of thirty six outcomes. The sample space is

(1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (1, 4), (1, 5), (1, 6)

### Describe in Detail

Find the missing value in the table by assuming a polynomial form for y:

 X 0 1 2 3 4 y 1 2 4 - 16

### Explanation

we have given that there are four values of y is given, then find the missing value of y at x = 3 using Lagrange’s interpolation polynomial because the x values is not equal interval.

The table is

 X 0 1 2 4 y 1 2 4 16
