The duration of a total eclipse can be calculated to better precision

than 1 minute for any location on the path of totality. So no.

But if you don't know where you are on the path it could well be regarded

as a RV. So the answer is yes.

Life does not consist of a sequence of multiple choice questions.This is one of my homework problems. There is no list of values to choose from. Can time be a discrete random variable and can it be discrete random variable if there are no values to choose from?

Thanks!
