Question One (Total: 50%)
Your friend owns a computer store in Shatin, selling Desktop and Notebook PCs and other computer peripherals.
Having been rather successful with his business there, he decided to venture into the infamous Mongkok Computer Center and he has already been there for three months. As expected, compared to his Shatin store, his new store has been recording much larger revenue but when it comes to profit, he is not so sure. He needs to pay several times more in rent though! In order to stimulate sales, your friend feels that he needs to understand the buying behavior of his customers in Mongkok more.
To help him do so, you are asked to take a look at the transactional data shown in Table 1 and to mine through association rules to help you to do the analysis.
(10 points) Before you go through the Apriori algorithm, justify whether or not you would include all the “Items” in the table for analysis.
Please explain your choice in less than on hundred words.
