Choose the correct answer below.
O A. Yes, the multiple regression equation should be used for predicting the height of a son based on the height of his father and mother because the P-value in
the ANOVA table is very low.
B. No, the multiple regression equation should not be used for predicting the height of a son based on the height of his father and mother because the P-value
for Intercept is not very low.
O C. No, the multiple regression equation should be used for predicting the height of a son based only on the height of his father because the P-value for Father is
smaller than the P-value for Mother.
D. No, the multiple regression equation should not be used for predicting the height of a son based on the height of his father and mother because the R2 and
adjusted R2 values are not very high.
