# Applied Machine Learning in Python week4 quiz answers

These solutions are for reference only.

It is recommended that you should solve the assignments amd quizes by yourself honestly then only it makes sense to complete the course.

but if you are stuck in between refer these solutions

make sure you understand the solution

dont just copy paste it

answers are in green colour

1。 Which of the following is an example of clustering?

Separate the data into distinct groups by similarity

Creating a new representation of the data with fewer features

Compress elongated clouds of data into more spherical representations

Accumulate data into groups based on labels

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2。Which of the following are advantages to using decision trees over other models? (Select all that apply)

Decision trees can learn complex statistical models using a variety of kernel functions

Trees are naturally resistant to overfitting

Trees often require less preprocessing of data

Trees are easy to interpret and visualize

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3。What is the main reason that each tree of a random forest only looks at a random subset of the features when building each node?

To increase interpretability of the model

To improve generalization by reducing correlation among the trees and making the model

more robust to bias.

To reduce the computational complexity associated with training each of the trees needed

for the random forest.

To learn which features are not strong predictors

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4。 Which of the following supervised machine learning methods are greatly affected by feature scaling? (Select all that apply)

Neural Networks

KNN

Decision Trees

Support Vector Machines

Naive Bayes

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5。 Select which of the following statements are true.

For a model that won’t overfit a training set, Naive Bayes would be a better choice than a decision tree.

For having an audience interpret the fitted model, a support vector machine would be a better choice than a decision tree.

For a fitted model that doesn’t take up a lot of memory, KNN would be a better choice than logistic regression.

For predicting future sales of a clothing line, Linear regression would be a better choice than a decision tree regressor.

7。 A decision tree of depth 2 is visualized below. Using the `value` attribute of each leaf, find the accuracy score for the tree of depth 2 and the accuracy score for a tree of depth 1.

What is the improvement in accuracy between the model of depth 1 and the model of depth 2?

0.06745

8。 For the autograded assignment in this module, you will create a classifier to predict whether a given blight ticket will be paid on time (See the module 4 assignment notebook for a more detailed description). Which of the following features should be removed from the training of the model to prevent data leakage? (Select all that apply)

grafitti_status - Flag for graffiti violations

collection_status - Flag for payments in collections

compliance_detail - More information on why each ticket was marked compliant or non-compliant

ticket_issued_date - Date and time the ticket was issued

agency_name - Agency that issued the ticket

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

9。 Which of the following might be good ways to help prevent a data leakage situation?

If time is a factor, remove any data related to the event of interest that doesn’t take place prior to the event.

Ensure that data is preprocessed outside of any cross validation folds.

Remove variables that a model in production wouldn’t have access to

Sanity check the model with an unseen validation set
