#### Question 1:

Define statistics as a subject.

#### Answer:

Statistics is the science which deals with the collection, presentation, analysis and interpretation of numerical data.

#### Page No 623:

#### Question 2:

Define some fundamental characteristics of statistics.

#### Answer:

The fundamental characteristics of data (statistics) are as follows:

(i) Numerical facts alone constitute data.

(ii) Qualitative characteristics like intelligence and poverty, which cannot be measured numerically, do not form data.

(iii) Data are aggregate of facts. A single observation does not form data.

(iv) Data collected for a definite purpose may not be suited for another purpose.

(v) Data in different experiments are comparable.

#### Page No 623:

#### Question 3:

What are primary data and secondary data? Which of the two is more reliable and why?

#### Answer:

Primary data: The data collected by the investigator himself with a definite plan in mind are known as primary data.

Secondary data: The data collected by someone other than the investigator are known as secondary data.

Primary data are highly reliable and relevant because they are collected by the investigator himself with a definite plan in mind, whereas secondary data are collected with a purpose different from that of the investigator and may not be fully relevant to the investigation.

#### Question 4:

Explain the meaning of each of the following terms:

(i) Variate

(ii) Class interval

(iii) Class size

(iv) Class mark

(v) Class limit

(vi) True class limits

(vii) Frequency of a class

(viii) Cumulative frequency of a class

#### Answer:

(i) Variate : Any character which is capable of taking several different values is called a variant or a variable.

(ii) Class interval : Each group into which the raw data is condensed is called class interval .

(iii) Class size: The difference between the true upper limit and the true lower limit of a class is called its class size.

(iv) Class mark of a class: The class mark is given by $\left(\frac{\mathrm{Upper}\mathrm{limit}+\mathrm{Lower}\mathrm{limit}}{2}\right)$.

(v) Class limit: Each class is bounded by two figures, which are called class limits.

(vi) True class limits: In the exclusive form, the upper and lower limits of a class are respectively known as true upper limit and true lower limit.

In the inclusive form of frequency distribution, the true lower limit of a class is obtained by subtracting 0.5 from the lower limit and the true upper limit of the class is obtained by adding 0.5 to the upper limit.

(vii) Frequency of a class: Frequency of a class is the number of times an observation occurs in that class.

(viii) Cumulative frequency of a class: Cummulative frequency of a class is the sum total of all the frequencies up to and including that class.

#### Question 19:

(i) Find the class mark of the class 90 – 120.

(ii) In a frequency distribution, the mid-value of the class is 10 and width of the class is 6. Find the lower limit of the class.

(iii) The width of each of five continuous classes in a frequency distribution is 5 and lower class limit of the lowest class is 10. What is the upper class limit of the highest class?

(iv) The class marks of a frequency distribution are 15, 20, 25, ... . Find the class corresponding to the class mark 20.

(v) In the class intervals 10 – 20, 20 – 30, find the class in which 20 is included.

#### Answer:

(i) $\mathrm{class}\mathrm{mark}=\frac{\mathrm{upper}\mathrm{limit}+\mathrm{lower}\mathrm{limit}}{2}=\frac{120+90}{2}=\frac{210}{2}=105$

(ii) mid-value = 10

width = 6

Let the lower limit of the class be *x*.

upper limit = *x* + 6

$\mathrm{class}\mathrm{mark}/\mathrm{mid}-\mathrm{value}=\frac{\mathrm{upper}\mathrm{limit}+\mathrm{lower}\mathrm{limit}}{2}$

$\frac{x+\left(x+6\right)}{2}=10\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=7$

(iii) width = 5

lower class limit of lowest class = 10

The classes will be 10-15, 15-20, 20-25, 25-30, 30-35.

Upper class limit of the highest class = 35.

(iv) Class marks = 15, 20, 25, ...

class size = 20 $-$ 15 = 5

Let lower limit of class be *x*.

$\frac{x+\left(x+5\right)}{2}=20\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=17.5$

Thus, the class is 17.5-22.5.

(v) 20 will be included in the class interval 20-30.

#### Answer:

The complete table will be

Height (in cm) |
Frequency |
Cumulative frequency |

160 – 165 | 15 | a = 15 |

165 – 170 | b = 35 – 15 = 20 |
35 |

170 – 175 | 12 | c = 35 + 12 = 47 |

175 – 180 | d = 50 – 47 = 3 |
50 |

180 – 185 | e = 55 – 50 = 5 |
55 |

185 – 190 | 5 | f = 55 + 5 = 60 |

g = 15 + 20 + 12+ 3 + 5 + 5 = 60 |

#### Question 2:

The class mark of the class 100−120 is

(a) 100

(b) 110

(c) 115

(d) 120

#### Answer:

(b) 110

Class mark = $\frac{\mathrm{Upper}\mathrm{limit}+\mathrm{Lower}\mathrm{limit}}{2}=\frac{120+100}{2}=110$

#### Page No 629:

#### Question 3:

In the class intervals 10−20, 20−30, the number 20 is included in

(a) 10−20

(b) 20−30

(c) in each of 10−20 and 20−30

(d) in none of 10−20 and 20−30

#### Answer:

(b) 20−30

This is the continuous form of frequency distribution. Here, the upper limit of each class is excluded, while the lower limit is included. So, the number 20 is included in the class interval 20−30.

#### Page No 629:

#### Question 4:

The class marks of a frequency distribution are 15, 20, 25, 30, .. . The class corresponding to the class marks 20 is

(a) 12.5−17.5

(b) 17.5−22.5

(c) 18.5−21.5

(d) 19.5−20.5

#### Answer:

(b) 17.5$-$22.5

We are given frequency distribution 15, 20, 25, 30,...

Class size = 20 $-$ 15 = 5

Class marks = 20

Now,

$\mathrm{Lower}\mathrm{limit}=\left(20-\frac{5}{2}\right)=\frac{35}{2}=17.5\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Upper}\mathrm{limit}=\left(20+\frac{5}{2}\right)=\frac{45}{2}=22.5\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

Thus, the required class is 17.5$-$22.5.

#### Question 5:

In a frequency distribution, the mid-value of a class is 10 and width of each class is 6. The lower limit of the class is

(a) 6

(b) 7

(c) 8

(d) 12

#### Answer:

(b) 7

Given:

Mid value of the class = 10

Width of each class = 6

Now,

Let the lower limit be *x. *

We know:

Upper limit = Lower limit + Class size

= *x* + 6

Also,

$\mathrm{Mid}\mathrm{value}=\frac{x+x+6}{2}=\frac{2x+6}{2}=x+3\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x+3=10\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=7$

Thus, the lower limit is 7.

#### Page No 629:

#### Question 6:

The mid-value of a class interval is 42 and the class size is 10. The lower and upper limits are

(a) 37−47

(b) 37.5−47.5

(c) 36.5−47.5

(d) 36.5−46.5

#### Answer:

(a) 37–47

Let the lower limit be *x. *

Here,

Class size = 10

∴ Upper limit = Class size + Lower limit

Upper limit = (*x *+ 10)

Mid value of the class interval = 42

$\therefore \frac{x+x+10}{2}=42\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{2x+10}{2}=42\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2x+10=84\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2x=74\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=37\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Thus},\mathrm{we}\mathrm{have}:\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Lower}\mathrm{limit}=37\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Upper}\mathrm{limit}=37+10=47\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

#### Question 7:

Let *m* be the midpoint and *u* be the upper class limit of a class in a continuous frequency distribution. The lower class limit of the class is

(a) 2*m* − *u*

(b) 2*m* + *u*

(c) *m* − *u*

(d) *m* + *u*

#### Answer:

(a) 2*m** *$-$ *u*

Given:

Mid value =* m*

Upper limit = *u*

We know:

$\frac{\mathrm{Lower}\mathrm{limit}+\mathrm{Upper}\mathrm{limit}}{2}=\mathrm{Mid}\mathrm{value}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{\mathrm{Lower}\mathrm{limit}+u}{2}=m\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \mathrm{Lower}\mathrm{limit}+u=2m\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \mathrm{Lower}\mathrm{limit}=2m\mathit{-}u$

#### Question 8:

The width of each of the five continuous classes in a frequency distribution is 5 and the lower class limit of the lowest class is 10. The upper class limit of the highest class is

(a) 45

(b) 25

(c) 35

(d) 40

#### Answer:

(c) 35

We have:

Class width = 5

Lower class limit of the lowest class = 10

Now,

Upper class limit of the highest class = 10 + 5 $\times $ 5 = 35

#### Page No 629:

#### Question 9:

Let* L* be the lower class boundary of a class in a frequency distribution and *m* be the midpoint of the class. Which one of the following is the upper class boundary of the class?

(a) $m+\frac{(m+L)}{2}$

(b) $L+\frac{m+L}{2}$

(c) $2m-L$

(d) $m-2L$

#### Answer:

(c) 2*m*$-$*L*

$\mathrm{Mid}\mathrm{value}=\frac{\mathrm{Lower}\mathrm{limit}+\mathrm{Upper}\mathrm{limit}}{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow m=\frac{L+U}{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow U=2m-L\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\therefore \mathrm{Upper}\mathrm{class}\mathrm{boundary}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{class}=2m-L$
