    i) T/F:Principal Components Analysis can be used to create a low dimensional projection of the data for use with clustering.

    For this one above, I say its false since PCA doesn't have clustering. Can someone please confirm this?

    ii) T/F: Factor Analysis and Principal Components Analysis have the same objective of modeling the correlation structure in multivariate data.

    For this one above, PCA is an exetension of FA, however does this mean this is True? PCA is different from FA, so I think its false

    Would greatly appreciate any reply. Tried to put some effort this time. Thanks!
