comment Making an inference from conditional probability values
Thank you for your response. I do agree that cost should be factored in when looking at this. I will look into this in more detail. Can you also answer my other fundamental question of comparing a probability with conditional probability? I want to understand if this is a fair comparison because the population is different.

comment Generating correlated distributions with a certain mean and standard deviation?
Thank you so much Gavin. I really appreciate your time. Accepted this as the answer as whuber added more details as comments.

comment Generating correlated distributions with a certain mean and standard deviation?
+1 Thank you Gavin. This example is just perfect. I just asked @whuber another question and am waiting for his response as well for the case when it is non-Gaussian. It would be greatly benefit me if you can append your answers with any other details regarding this.

comment Generating correlated distributions with a certain mean and standard deviation?
@whuber: Thank you. In my case, there is evidence pointing to A following Gaussian but not always. Therefore, while my original intent was to understand this in the case of Gaussians, I am interested in understanding when it is not Gaussians. I am not an expert in this so I'm not quite sure I understand the second half of your question concerning location-scale families. I read this on Wiki and based on my understanding, it looks my answer is "yes" but I'm not quite sure how this will affect the solution. Can you kindly shed more light on how this will affect the solution?

comment Fitting mixture distributions and computing goodness-of-fit?
Fair enough. I am not expecting a reply but I'll add one additional point anyways. The OP in that post initially gets a high p-value but later suggests a bootstrap technique that results in a lower p-value. I wasn't quite understanding which technique to follow. As for the K-S test, I'm not bent on using this. I am just looking to see if there is a clear way for a non-statistician to tell someone help that this fit is good or bad.
