A
$${1 \over 7}$$
B
$${1 \over 5}$$

In a time series forecasting model, the demand for five time periods was $$10, 13,$$ $$15,$$ $$18$$ and $$22.$$ A linear regression fit resulted in an equation $$F = 6.9 + 2.9$$ $$t$$ where $$F$$ is the forecast for period $$t$$. The sum of absolute deviations for the five data is
A
$$2.2$$
B
$$0.2$$
C
$$-1.2$$
