a. Continuous, b. Discrete, c. Continuous, d. discrete and e. Continuous.

Step-by-step explanation:

Random variable is a measurable function from a sample space to the measurable space of possible values of the variable.

Discrete characteristics means it is – non-continuous and can be perceived individually and not as connected to, or part of something else.

A continuous variable is a variable whose value is obtained by measuring a characteristic.

a. The weight of a T-bone steak; the random variable is continuous

b. The number of fish caught during a fishing tournament; the random variable is discrete

c. The number of bald eagles in the country; the random variable is continuous

d. The number of light bulbs that burn out in the next week in a room with 18 bulbs; the random variable is discrete.

e. The time it takes to fly from City A to City B; the random variable is continuous.
