Accepted Solution
Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 9 CQQ Answer : Step 1 : The value of correlation coefficient must lies in between -1 to 1. If the value correlation is -1, then it is negatively correlated, if it is 1 then we can say that positively correlated, if the value is o then there is no correlation. The correlation coefficient value be 3.335, we can say that there must be error in computation, the correlation value does not exceed more than one on the positive side.
