Suppose A and B are discrete random variables. They have mean 0 and variance 1. Let C =max(A$^2,B^2$) Find: 1. E[Z] ≤ 2 2. p=cov(A,B). Prove that E[Z] ≤ 1√1−p$^2$ I've done part 1, need help for part 2.

The problem as stated looks funny. If p=0, then E(Z)=0, which cannot be. (I presume Z and C are the same).
