A large cooler contains the following drinks: 6 lemonade, 8 Sprite, 15 Coke, and 7 root beer. You randomly pick two cans, one at a time (without replacement).

(a) What is the probability that you get 2 cans of Sprite?

(b) What is the probability that you do not get 2 cans of Coke?

(c) What is the probability that you get either 2 root beer or 2 lemonade?

(d) What is the probability that you get one can of Coke and one can of Sprite?

(e) What is the probability that you get two drinks of the same type?

Given you have an independent random sample X1,X2,,Xn of a Bernoulli random variable with parameter p, estimate the variance of the maximum likelihood estimator of p using the Cramer-Rao lower bound for the variance
So, with large enough sample size, I know the population mean of the estimator P^ will be p, and the variance will be:
Var[P^]=1nE[((/p) lnfx(X))2]
Now I'm having some trouble calculating the variance of P^, this is what I have so far:
since the probability function of X is binomial, we have:
fx(X¯)=ni=1nXi*pi=1nXi*(1-p)n-i=1nXi
so: lnfX(X)=ln(ni=1nXi)+i=1nXiln(p)+(n-i=1nXi)ln(1-p)
and: lnfX(X)p=i=1nXip-(n-i=1nXi)(1-p)=nX¯p-(n-nX¯)(1-p)
 

and: (lnfX(X)p)2=(nX¯p-(n-nX¯)(1-p))2=n2p2-2n2pX¯+n2X¯2p2(1-p)2
since E[X2]=μ2+σ2n, and for a Bernoulli random variable E[X]=μ=p=E[X] and Var[X]=σ2=p(1p):
E(lnfX(X)p)2=n2p2-2n2pE[X¯]+n2E[X¯2]p2(1-p)2=n2p2-2n2p2+n2(p2+p(1-p)n)p2(1-p)2=np(1-p)p2(1-p)2=np(1-p)
Therefore, Var[P^]=1nE[((/p) lnfx(X))2]=1nnp(1-p)=p(1-p)n2
However, I believe the true value I should have come up with is p(1p)n.
