03.A predictive model uses a data set that has several variables with missing values. What two problems can arise with this model? (Choose two.)

A. The model will likely be overfit.
B. There will be a high rate of collinearity among input variables.
C. Fewer observations will be used in the model building process.
D. New cases with missing values on input variables cannot be scored without extra data processing.

04. When mean imputation is performed on data after the data is partitioned for honest assessment, what is the most appropriate method for handling the mean imputation?

A. The sample means from the validation data set are applied to the training and test data sets.

09. Which statement is true for negative binomial and Poisson regression models?

A. Poisson regression models are used for count data, and negative binomial models are used for binary responses.
B. The canonical link function for Poisson regression is the log, while for negative binomial it is the logit.
C. Negative binomial models accommodate negative integers while Poisson regression does not.
D. Poisson regression is a special case of negative binomial regression.
