Let

Yn=∑i=1n(−1)iXi=−X1+X2−X3+⋯,

where the Xi are i.i.d., with E[Xi]=0, and var(Xi)=4.

Is
1nYn

approximately normal? Choose the most appropriate response:

No.

Yes, because the {Yi}i=1∞ are i.i.d., so we can directly apply the Central Limit Theorem.

Yes, because the {(−1)iXi} are i.i.d., so we can directly apply the Central Limit Theorem.

Yes, because Yn/n is the sum of two independent approximately normal random variables.

Yes, because E[Yi]=0 and var(Yi) is finite, so we can directly apply the Weak Law of Large Numbers.
