1. linear
2. sigmoid
3. parabolic
4. exponential

3. Consider the case where two classes follow Gaussian distribution which are centered at (-1, 2) and (1, 4) and have identity covariance matrix. Which of the following is the separating decision boundary using LDA?

5. None of these
6. Can not be found from the given information

4. Consider the following relation between a dependent variable and an independent variable identified by doing simple linear regression. Which among the following relations between the two variables does the graph indicate?

1. as the independent variable increases, so does the dependent variable
2. as the independent variable increases, the dependent variable decreases
3. if an increase in the value of the dependent variable is observed then the independent variable will show a corresponding increase
4. if an increase in the value of the dependent variable is observed, then the independent variable Will show a corresponding decrease
5. the dependent variable in this graph does not actually depend on the independent variable
6. none of the above

5. Given the following distribution of data points:
