Question 1:  Which one  of the following statements is NOT true?

A - Outliers can have a substantial  impact on the correlation coefficient and should preferably be removed.

B - A Correlation coefficient r of -0.2 means that there is a weak negative relationship.

C - You can run a correlation analysis with one nominal variable and one parametric variable?

Question 2:  Assume that the true weight of a unit is 100grams.  You measure the weight 6 times with your measurement                         device.  The outcome of the 6 measurements are 90= grams, 89 grams, 90 grams, 91 grams, 90 grams, 90                           grams.  As such, your measurement device is:
