● The estimate for \(\alpha \) should be positive and statistically significant
○ The estimate for \(\alpha \) should be positive and statistically significantly greater than the risk-free rate of return
○ The estimate for \(\alpha \) should be positive and statistically significant

● We are 95% sure that the interval contains the true value of the parameter
○ We are 95% sure that our estimate of the coefficient is correct

KTL_002_C1_8: Which of the following statements is correct concerning the conditions required for OLS to be a usable estimation technique?
● The model must be linear in the parameters
○ The model must be linear in the variables

KTL_002_C1_9: Which of the following is NOT a good reason for including a disturbance term in a regression equation?
○ It captures omitted determinants of the dependent variable
● To allow for the non-zero mean of the dependent variable
○ To allow for errors in the measurement of the dependent variable

KTL_002_C1_10: Which of the following is NOT correct with regard to the p-value attached to a test statistic?
● p-values can only be used for two-sided tests
○ It is the marginal significance level where we would be indifferent between rejecting and not rejecting the null hypothesis
○ It is the exact significance level for the test
○ Given the p-value, we can make inferences without referring to statistical tables
KTL_002_C1_11: Which one of the following is NOT an assumption of the classical linear regression model?

● It is a formula that, when applied to the data, will yield the parameter estimates
○ It is equivalent to the term “the OLS estimate”
○ It is a collection of all of the data used to estimate a linear regression model.
KTL_002_C1_13: Two researchers have identical models, data, coefficients and standard error estimates. They test the same hypothesis using a two-sided alternative, but researcher 1 uses a 5% size of test while researcher 2 uses a 10% test. Which one of the following statements is correct?
○ Researcher 2 will use a larger critical value from the t-tables
● Researcher 2 will have a higher probability of type I error
○ Researcher 1 will be more likely to reject the null hypothesis
○ Both researchers will always reach the same conclusion.
KTL_002_C1_14: Consider an increase in the size of the test used to examine a hypothesis from 5% to 10%. Which one of the following would be an implication?
● The probability of a Type I error is increased
○ The probability of a Type II error is increased
○ The rejection criterion has become more strict
○ The null hypothesis will be rejected less often.
KTL_002_C1_15: What is the relationship, if any, between the normal and t-distributions?

○ A t-distribution with one degree of freedom is a normal
● A t-distribution with infinite degrees of freedom is a normal
○ There is no relationship between the two distributions.
