The regression results for model 4 are notable because

Select one:

a. adding the redundant D variable to the seasonally adjusted data causes the coefficient estimates for t and t2to be dramatically different than they were in models 2 and 3.

b. adding a redundant seasonal dummy to already seasonally-adjusted data results in the D variable being insignificant, as expected, and the model’s explanatory power is essentially the same as models 2 and 3.

c. making the seasonal adjustment in the dependent variable, in addition to adding the D dummy, yields the best results in terms of significant coefficients, explanatory power, and expected signs.

d. the adjusted R2 is higher than in the comparable model 3 (without the D).

Conlan Enterprises has the following demand function:

Q = a + bP + cM + dPR

where Q is the quantity demanded of the product Conlan Enterprises sells, P is the price of that product, M is income, and PR is the price of a related product.  The regression results are:

Dependent Variable: Q R2 F-ratio p-value on F  
Observations: 32 0.7984 36.14 0.0001  
Variable Parameter Estimate Standard Error T-ratio P-value
Intercept 846.30 76.70 11.03 0.0001
P -8.60 2.60 -3.31 0.0026
M 0.0184 0.0048 3.83 0.0007
PR -4.3075 1.230 -3.50 0.0016

Do you think these regression results will generate good sales estimates for Conlan?

Select one:

a. Yes; the parameter estimates have expected signs, the individual coefficients are statistically significant at the 1% level, and the R2 is high.

b. Yes, except that the R2 is too low to be convincing. The rest of the results (p-values, expected signs) are satisfactory.

c. No; though the R2 is good and the variables have the expected signs, the estimated coefficients are not statistically significant.

d. No; the estimated coefficient for P should be positive, not negative.

Now assume that the income is $10,000, the price of the related good is $40, and Conlan chooses to set the price of its product at $30.
