CFA Practice Question

The slope coefficient in a regression measures:
A. The percentage change in the dependent variable caused by a 1% change in the independent variable.
B. The rate at which the dependent variable changes with respect to the independent variable.
C. The change in the independent variable caused by a unit change in the dependent variable.
Explanation: In a univariate regression, the slope coefficient gives the change in the dependent variable caused by a unit change in the independent variable. It thus measures the rate at which the dependent variable changes with respect to the independent variable.

Alastair univariate regression = linear regression
JalaniN wht about c? I think b is also right
patsy no. percentage change will depend on the constant also. slope indicates rate of change
grezavi think y=mx+b y dep x inde m slope b intercept
amigosu C is not right because dependent and independent are swapped
