This paper examines and discusses a comparative analysis of hypothetical data by using bootstrap methods. The residual and wild bootstrap methods, including their rescaled versions were applied on the data collected from a normal distribution with different ability levels to check whether they are significant at various assessment conditions. The wild bootstrap compared in this paper are from Mammen and Redamarche distributions. In addition their kernel density plot is used to ascertain the trends and the performance at the lower ends of the distributions for each bootstrap model and also the trend as sample size tends to infinity. To achieve this, each of the forms were represented by using at least one functional model each from hypothetical data sets of a particular bootstrap data generating process (DGP) method to illustrate how 8640 scenerios were estimated. The result shows that the Hypothetical Rescaled Residual (HRR) is found to be preferable to the Hypothetical Unrescaled Residual (HR) while Hypothetical Wild Redamarche Model (HRWR) is found to be preferable to the Hypothetical Wild Mammen model (HRWM) with reference to their bias, standard error and root mean square error (RMSE) at different levels of significance, that is, B=99, N(0,1), n1 & n3 = 10000, RMSE = -0.0004 &-0.0025 respectively. Aslo, B=99, N(0,1), n3 = 10000, RMSE = -0.0004. Even though at B=99, N(0,1), n2 = 10000, RMSE for HRWM (0.0601) is higher than HRWR (0.0595). In fact, across all the models, rescaled residual functional model out performed all other functional models considered in this paper. Also, the trends at the lower ends of the distributions for each bootstrap model shows that the empirical distributions of true distributions follow the chi-square distribution and also tends to normal distribution as sample size tends to inifinity.
