#### Solution Preview

(a) Consider a long-popular brand of bulbs manufactured by a company. Let the random variable T represent the life times of these bulbs. A bulb picked up at random from the lot may last for 1205 hours or it may last for 1205.50 hours also. Thus T can assume integer values as well as decimal values, and therefore, T is a continuous random variable.
(b) Does T follow a uniform distribution or a normal ...
