### For what is Basu's theorem often used?

• A.

To resolve statistics

• B.

To measure the value of the statistics

• C.

To prove independence of two statistics

• D.

To test the relationship between two statistical data sets

C. To prove independence of two statistics
Explanation
Basu's theorem is often used to prove the independence of two statistics. This theorem states that if a statistic is ancillary and sufficient, then it is independent of any other statistic that is based on the same sample. In other words, if two statistics are independent, it means that knowing the value of one does not provide any information about the other. Therefore, Basu's theorem is commonly employed to establish the independence between two statistics in statistical analysis.

### With what other theorem independence of two statistics can also be proven?

• A.

Theory of statistics

• B.

Pell's theorem

• C.

Probability theory

• D.

Cochran's theorem

D. Cochran's theorem
Explanation
Cochran's theorem is a statistical theorem that allows us to prove the independence of two statistics. It states that if two statistics are independently distributed under the null hypothesis, then their joint distribution is also independent. This theorem is commonly used in hypothesis testing and regression analysis to verify the independence of different statistical measures. Therefore, Cochran's theorem provides a reliable method to establish the independence of two statistics in the field of statistics.

### What is proven in this example (See picture)?

• A.

A is dependent of T

• B.

A is independent of B

• C.

A is independent of T

• D.

B is independent of T

C. A is independent of T
Explanation
The given example shows that A is independent of T. This means that the value or occurrence of A does not depend on the value or occurrence of T. In other words, T does not have any influence or impact on A.
