Answer:a) Discrete Variable

b) Continuous Variable

Step-by-step explanation:We are given the following in the question:

Discrete and Continuous:(a) The number of free dash throw attempts before the first shot is made.Since the number of shots made will always be expressed in whole numbers and the number of shots made will counted and not measured. Thus, number of free dash throw attempts before the first shot is made. is a discrete variable.

(b) The distance a baseball travels in the air after being hit.The distance is a continuous variable as its value can be expressed in decimals. Also distance is always measured and not counted. Thus, distance a baseball travels in the air after being hit is a continuous variable.
