## Urgent! Real quick question! Can we make a conclusion/inference from this graph?

This is what I did on StatsCrunch using the data they gave me:

Would the answer be B and C?
Because A can't be right...our data goes up to 2000. And while there still is a trend going on (newer homes --> more square ft), we can't really give a "predicted value of 1964 and 2250". So that would eliminate D and E (the fourth option and the sixth option).
Am I right? I only get one submission and I have to choose AT LEAST ONE of these.

 Explain clearly why you rejected the options that you did. I can see an obvious problem with the dataset that you're ignoring.

Option 1 is false because the the scatter plot isn't necessarily linear - it's pretty randomized
Option 2 could be true because our parameter is 1920-2000
Option 3 is true.
Options 4, 5, and 6 are false.

 Options 4, 5, and 6 are false.
Explain why.

 Quote by Number Nine Explain why.
Well you can't predict exactly how many square ft. a home built 15 years from the year 2000 will have. Especially considering the limited data that was given.
Option 5 just doesn't make sense to me. So it has to be Options 2 and 3.

It "doesn't make sense"? Do you understand the assumptions involved in least squares regression? Does the dataset look like it has equal variance across observations?

Oh well not /completely. But to answer your second question, no it doesn't.

So Option 5 would also be the correct answer (along with Options 2 and 3)?
