• B. Candidate 2, because the area under the curve is greater
• C. Candidate 1, because it is closer to the diagonal reference curve

NEW QUESTION 9
Refer to the lift chart: At a depth of 0.1, Lift = 3.14. What does this mean?

• C. Selecting the top 10% of the population scored by the model should result in 3.14 timesgreater accuracy than a random draw of 10%.
• D. Selecting the observations with a response probability of atleast 10% should result in 3.14times greater accuracy than a random draw of 10%.

NEW QUESTION 13
Refer to the exhibit: The box plot was used to analyze daily sales data following three different ad campaigns. The business analyst concludes that one of the assumptions of ANOVA was violated.
Which assumption has been violated and why?

• A. Normality, because Prob > F < .0001.
• B. Normality, because the interquartile ranges are different in different ad campaigns.

NEW QUESTION 16
An analyst knows that the categorical predictor, storeId, is an important predictor of the target.

wants to combine stores and treat them as members of the same class level. What are the two most effective ways to address the problem? (Choose two.)
