For the Jorion question, can you provide the equation 6.3? Do we need to know this for the exam?
A bank reports 6 exceptions to its 99 percent VAR over the last year (252 days), including 4 that follow another day of exception. Compute the likelihood-ratio tests...

Q2. There is an example in Jorion where they have found that when p =...
