1. We take a sample of adults and measure their heights. If we record the gender of each person, we can calculate the average height and the variance of the height, separately, for men and women. Suppose, however, that this information was not recorded. Would it be possible to still obtain this information? Explain.
2. In CLIQUE, the threshold used to find cluster density remains constant,
even as the number of dimensions increases. This is a potential problem
since density drops as dimensionality increases; i.e., to find clusters in higher
dimensions the threshold has to be set at a level that may well result in the
merging of low-dimensional clusters. Comment on whether you feel this is
truly a problem and, if so, how you might modify CLIQUE to address this
