Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Looking at the time series plot above, would you recommend deseasonalizing as a way to create a better line for forecasting?

    • A.

      Yes, because it has seasonal variation

    • B.

      No, because it doesn't have seasonal variation

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes, because it has seasonal variation
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Yes, because it has seasonal variation." Deseasonalizing is a method used to remove the seasonal component from a time series data. If the time series plot shows clear patterns of seasonal variation, it is recommended to deseasonalize the data before forecasting to create a better line and improve the accuracy of the forecast.

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes, because it has seasonal variation
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Yes, because it has seasonal variation." This is because deseasonalizing the data can help remove the seasonal component, allowing for a clearer trend to be identified and a more accurate forecast to be made.

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes, because it has seasonal variation
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Yes, because it has seasonal variation." Deseasonalising is a technique used to remove the seasonal component from a time series data. If the time series plot shows clear patterns of seasonal variation, it is recommended to deseasonalise the data in order to create a more accurate and reliable line for forecasting.

    Looking at the time series plot above, would you recommend deseasonalising as a way to create a better line for forecasting?

    • A.

      Yes, because it has seasonal variation

    • B.

      No, because it doesn't have seasonal variation

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes, because it has seasonal variation
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Yes, because it has seasonal variation." The time series plot shows that there is a repeating pattern or trend that occurs at regular intervals, indicating the presence of seasonal variation. Deseasonalising the data would help in removing this seasonal component, allowing for a more accurate and reliable forecasting model to be created.

    Looking at the time series plot above, would you recommend deseasonalising as a way to create a better line for forecasting?

    • A.

      Yes, because it has seasonal variation

    • B.

      No, because it doesn't have seasonal variation

    Correct Answer
    B. No, because it doesn't have seasonal variation
    Explanation
    The correct answer is No, because it doesn't have seasonal variation. Deseasonalizing is a technique used to remove the seasonal component from a time series in order to create a more accurate forecast. However, if the time series plot does not exhibit any clear patterns or cycles over time, it suggests that there is no seasonal variation present. In this case, deseasonalizing would not be necessary or beneficial for forecasting.
