I don't see final hypothesis here , what I am missing , any hint

Could it be that in problem 5 there is supposed to be only one target function and many in-sample data ? If so then the final hypothesis/weights could be that produces minimum in-sample error E_in .

Please clarify.
Thanks a lot.
There is a final hypothesis for each of the 1000 runs. The only reason we are repeating the runs is to average out statistical fluctuations, but all the notions of the learning problem, including the final hypothesis, pertain to a single run.
