comment What is an example of a lambda-system that is not a sigma algebra?
I think you only need relative complement of included sets? I.e., $A \subseteq B \Rightarrow B \setminus A \in L$.

comment Example where union of increasing sigma algebras is not a sigma algebra
Not to me :) But, even if I were one of your students, I don't think this question goes beyond what students would discuss between themselves.

comment Sufficient statistics vs. Bayesian sufficient statistics
Your factorization is right. However, to comment on why the RHS does not depend on $\theta$: the formula is saying that $\theta$ provides no additional information beyond $t$.

comment Why is Euler's Gamma function the “best” extension of the factorial function to the reals?
Also, please see my first question -- I guess you know the answer!
