A random walk is the process by which random movements of objects wander away from where they started, in other words, events that cannot be predicted. Example: Changes in the price of stock, though have the same distribution and are independent of each other, so in this case the past movement or graph of a stock price or trend in the market cannot be used to predict its future movement. In short, it's only an idea that stocks take a random and unpredictable path

State whether the inl'esrigarion in question is an observational study or a designed experiment. Justify your answer in each case. According to a study published in the Journal of the American Public Health Association, left-handed people do not die at an earlier age than right-handed people, contrary to the conclusion of a highly publicized report done 2 years earlier. The investigation involved a 6-year study of 3800 people in East Boston older than age 65. Researchers at Harvard University and the National Institute of Aging found that the "lefties" and "righties" died at exactly the same rate. "There was no difference, period," said Dr. J. Guralnik, an epidemiologist at the institute and one of the coauthors of the report.
