### Describe in Detail

Define estimability of a linear parametric function in a Gauss Markov model. State and prove a necessary and sufficient condition for estimability.

### Explanation

** Estimability **: The linear parametric function c’β is an estimable function if there exists a vector

a ** R **

^{ n }such that

If X is of full column rank then all linear combinations of β are estimable, since is unique, that is

Suppose we are dealing with the
