4. An employee selected at random is neither in sales nor a college graduate? (10+5+5)
5. The joint probability density function of a two-dimensional random variable (X,Y) is given by:
6. Verify that whether f(x,y) is a joint p.d.f.
7. Find the marginal density functions of X and of Y
8. Find the conditional density function of Y given X=x and conditional density function of X given Y=y.
9. Check for independence of X and Y.        (5+6+6+3)
