**CFA Practice Question**

Which of the following is false?

A. The probabilities for different possible values of a random variable with a discrete uniform distribution are equal.

B. A random variable with a binomial distribution can have one of two possible values.

C. The probabilities for different possible values of a random variable with a continuous uniform distribution are equal.

**Explanation:**A binomial distribution is the discrete probability distribution of the number of successes in a sequence of n independent yes/no experiments, each of which yields success with probability p. It can therefore take all integer values from 0 to n.

It asks for the random variables of binomial distribution which can take any value in the range (0 to n). The outcome of experiment is the one that has 2 values: success or failure |

Why not A guys? I think this is what a discrete uniform is. |
