(10 Marks)

I. If the statement is true under all conditions circle T otherwise circle F.

A. If the mean of a Poisson distribution is 3 then its variance is also 3. T F

B. For a 99% Confidence Interval the confidence coefficient is 0.99. T F

C. A point estimator is usually a parameter. T F

D. The exponential random variable is discrete. T F

E. If we increase the sample size n then sampling error increases. T F

F. s is a biased estimator of F. T F

G. The t-distribution with 9 degrees of freedom has a smaller variance

than the standard normal distribution. T F

o o

H. In the standard normal distribution if P(z > z ) = 0.5 then z = 0. T F

I. A small variance is not a desirable property of an estimator. T F

J. A small width is a good feature in a Confidence Interval. T F
