### Quiz zum Vortrag

1. We can determine whether the distributions have different numbers of modes.
2. We can determine the exact distribution of data points.
3. We can evaluate categorical variables.
4. We cannot evaluate continuous data.
5. We can visualize symmetric data but we cannot visualize bimodal data.
1. We cannot tell whether one distribution has more modes than the other.
2. We cannot tell whether the distributions are centered in different places.
3. We cannot tell whether one distribution has a higher spread than the other.
4. We cannot tell whether there are outliers in any distribution.
5. We cannot tell the range of data.
1. It can be difficult to summarize their distribution using center and spread.
2. They cannot be summarized using a box plot.
3. They cannot be summarized using a histogram.
4. It is not possible to calculate the mean.
5. It is not possible to calculate the standard deviation.
1. Skewed data are often made more symmetric by transforming them using the natural logarithm.
2. Skewed data is often made more symmetric by discarding the observations in the tail.
3. Skewed data is often made more symmetric by multiplying each observation by a constant.
4. If data is skewed, there is no way to make them more symmetric.
5. Skewed data are made more symmetric by adding a constant to each data point.
1. Comparing distributions is more difficult if the two data sets are not on the same scale.
2. Comparing distributions is challenging if there are a different number of data points between the data sets.
3. Comparing distributions is made more difficult by ignoring outliers altogether
4. Comparing distributions is made more difficult when both distributions have the same center and spread
5. Comparing distributions is more challenging with smaller data sets.
