Final Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

A continuous random variable is a category of random variables that can take any value from an infinite interval. Continuous random variables are used for describing physical properties from real-world, such as time, motion, temperature, length and so on. 

An important and useful example of a continuous random variable is the standard normal variable Z. Another example may be, the temperature in a day. 

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
