Identify the parameters of this model, Econometrics

Consider a Simple Linear Regression Model (SLRM) of the form y= a1+a2X+e where e ~  N(0,σ2)(Use the assumptions outlined in our class and available for review in the lecture notes posted on RamCT to answer the following questions)

(a) Identify the dependent variable in this model. Is it random? If so, how is it distributed (what is the mean and variance)? Is it observable or not?

(b) Identify the parameters of this model. Are they random? If so, how are they distributed (what is the mean and variance)? Is it observable or not?

(c) Identify the error term in this model. Is it random? If so, how is it distributed (what is the mean and variance)? Is it observable or not?
