A: Metric Spaces
(Marks: 40)
1. (a) Define limit points in a metric space. 1
(b) A mapping defined by for all, where
. Show that is a metric on 3
(c) Let be a metric space and. Show that (interior of) is an open set. 2
2. (a) Define a closed set. Show that in a metric spaceevery closed sphere in a closed set. 1+3=4
(b) Prove that in a metric space any finite intersection of open sets is open. 4
Or
Letbe a metric space and. Then show thatis closed if and only ifcontains all its limit points.
(c) Define a product metric space. 1
3. (a) Define a convergent sequence in a metric space. 1
(b) Prove that in a metric space every convergent sequence has a unique limit. 3
(c) Show that the Euclidean spaceis a complete metric space with the usual metricdefined by
Where 4
Or
Letbe a Cauchy sequence in a metric space. Prove thatis convergent if and only if it has a convergent subsequence.
(d) Letbe a subspace of a metric space. Show that if is complete, and then is closed. 4
Or
Letbe a metric space and. Then show that is dense inif intersects every nonempty open set.
4. (a) Define a continuous function in a metric space. 1
(b) Letandbe metric spaces. Then prove that a functionis continuous if and only ifis closed in, whenever is closed in . 4
(c) Letandbe metric spaces, be a continuous function and. Then show that the restriction is continuous on. 3
Or
Letand be two metric spaces and be a homeomorphism. Show that a subset is open if and only if its image is open.
5. (a) Define a compact metric space. 2
(b) Show that a closed subset of a compact metric space is compact. 3
Or
Show that a compact metric space has BolzanoWeierstrass property.
B: Statistics
(Marks: 40)
6. (a) What is empirical probability? Mention its relation with classical probability. 2
(b) Explain two merits of axiomatic probability. Define probability measure in terms of probability function. 2
(c) Two dice are rolled. Find the probability of getting ‘an even number on the first die or a total of 8’. 3
(d) The probability of A, B and C becoming officers in a firm were respectively. The probabilities that the bonus scheme will be introduced if A, B and C becomes officers are respectively. What is the probability that A will be officer if bonus scheme has been introduced? 4
