A truefalse test consists of 20 questions, each of which has one correct answer: true, or false. One point is awarded for every correct answer, but one point is taken off for each wrong answer. Suppose a student answers every question by guessing at random, independently of other questions. Let S be the student’s score on the test.
1Find E(S)
2Find SE(S)
3Find (no approximations, please) P(S=0)
