Question;Question 1.;1.;A production process is;known to produce a particular item in such a way that 5 percent of these;are defective. If two items are randomly selected as they come off the;production line, what is the probability that both are defective;(assuming that they are independent)?;(Points: 4);0.01000.10000.20000.00250.0250;Question 2.;2.;Which distribution is helpful in testing hypotheses about variances?;(Points: 4);binomial distributionF distributionnormal distributionPoisson distributionexponential distribution;Question 3.;3.;At a university with;1,000 business majors, there are 200 business students enrolled in an;introductory statistics course. Of these 200 students, 50 are also;enrolled in an introductory accounting course. There are an additional;250 business students enrolled in accounting but not enrolled in;statistics.

The probabilities are the same for each of these;(1/7). If X is the number of calls arriving in a five-minute time;period, what is the mean of X?;(Points: 4);2345None of the above;Question 7.;7.;At a university with;1,000 business majors, there are 200 business students enrolled in an;introductory statistics course. Of these 200, 50 are also enrolled in;an introductory accounting course. There are an additional 250 business;students enrolled in accounting but not enrolled in statistics. If a;business student is selected at random, what is the probability that the;student is enrolled in neither accounting nor statistics?;(Points: 4);0.450.500.550.05None of the above;Question 8.;8.;Historical data;indicates that only 20% of cable customers are willing to switch;companies.
