Expert Answer

Step 1

Hello there ! I see there are more than three subparts in the question. According to our policies can answer only three subparts. Do find the solutions for a,b,c. If you have doubt in remaining parts, kindly request as a new question.

Step 2

Given "The center of a 95% confidence interval for population mean is a randon variable."

The formula of confidence interval is given below

Here we can see that the boundaries of confidence interval is (sample mean - margin of error and sample mean + margin of error). So the center of the confidence interval is nothing but (Xbar) Sample mean.  The sample mean will vary from sample to sample and so as the sample standard deviation. So we can say that the center of confidence interval for population mean (Xbar) is random. So the given statement is TRUE.
