H7, Q3 - Validation Set
 
When question 3 asks, "For which model is the classification error on the validation set smallest?" am I correct in assuming it's referring to the new validation set -- the first 25 points, which were previously called the training set?

In other words, it's asking for the new E_val, not the new E_in, yes?

Correct. E_{\rm val} is the error on the current validation set.
