- a continuous variable
- a dependent variable
- a linear variable

- Predicted variance
- Regression variance
- Total variance
- Residual variance

**Question 3**

Which of the following is true about multi-collinearity?

- The regression coefficients become clearer and are easier to interpret.
- The effect of an independent variable on the dependent variable becomes easy to isolate.
- The P-value reduces significantly, leading to rejection of the null hypothesis.
- It is measured using a measure called variance inflation factor (VIF).

A correlation coefficient between “college entrance exam” grades and scholastic achievement was found to be -1.08. On the basis of this, you would tell the university that:

- The exam is a poor predictor of success.
- They should hire a new statistician.
- Students who do best on this exam will make the worst students.
- The entrance exam is a good predictor of success.

What would be the null hypothesis for testing a linear regression model with profit as the dependent variable and sales as the independent variable?

- There is a positive relationship between profit and sales.
- There is a linear relationship between profit and sales that can be either positive or negative.
- There is no linear relationship between profit and sales.
- There is a negative relationship between profit and sales.

**Question 7**

Which of the following statement is true based on the following regression equation?

IQ = 4.0 + Reading Label * 5.6

- A unit point change in IQ will result in 9.6-point increase in reading label.
- Reading label is not a good predictor of IQ.
- A unit point change in IQ will result in 5.6-point increase in reading label.
- A unit point change in reading label will increase IQ by 5.6 point.

The correlation coefficient between the age of a vehicle and the money spent to repair it is 0.9. Which of the following statement is true?

- 90% of the repair cost will be explained by the age of the vehicle
- 81% of money spent on repairs is explained by the age of the vehicle
- 81% of the variation in the money spent on repairs is explained by the age of the vehicle
- 90% of the money spent on repair is explained by the age of the vehicle

**Question 9**

1 / 1 pts

A manager wishes to predict the annual cost (y) of an automobile based on the number of miles (x) driven. The following model was developed: y = $1500 + 0.36x. If a car is driven 15000 miles in a year, the model predicts the annual cost of the car to be:

- $2090
- $3850
- $6900
- $7400
