The question is not about the input distribution. Just to make sure that there is no misunderstanding, there is more to noise than just the expected value of its energy.

2. The question asks for identifying a true statement, this doesn't necessarily mean (or does it?) that there is only one true statement among the choices. Is this so?

Correct. There is exactly one true statement.
