Answer:
It can be observed from the given data that the maximum class frequency is 10 belonging to class interval 30 − 35.
Therefore, modal class = 30 − 35
Class size (h) = 5
Lower limit (l) of modal class = 30
Frequency (f_{1}) of modal class = 10
Frequency (f_{0}) of class preceding modal class = 9
Frequency (f_{2}) of class succeeding modal class = 3
It represents that most of the states/U.T have a teacher-student ratio as 30.6.
To find the class marks, the following relation is used.
Taking 32.5 as assumed mean (a), d_{i},...
