Q1. Which of the following is the most appropriate strategy for data cleaning before performing clustering analysis, given less than a desirable number of data points?

  1. Capping and flooring of variables

  2. Removal of outliers

Q2. What is the minimum no. of variables/ features required to perform clustering?
