QUESTION: 1

### The sign of the correlation is determined by the

Solution:

The sign of covariance between X and Y determines the sign of the correlation coefficient. The value of r does not contain any unit.

QUESTION: 2

### Y = a + bX, in the given linear equation, the intercept term is denoted by

Solution:

Y = a + bX, in linear equation, the intercept term is denoted by a. It is the point at which this line intersect at y-axis.

QUESTION: 3

### The value of coefficient of correlation is unaffected by

Solution:

QUESTION: 9

If the values of a series is added by a common number, it is said to be

Solution:

The value of coefficient correlation remains unaffected by the change in origin and change in scale.
