## Short Questions

**Q.2 Attempt any eight parts. The answer to each part should not exceed 3 to 4 lines. (8 x 3 = 24)**

### (i) **Differentiate between descriptive and inferential statistics.**

**Answer:**

Descriptive statistics deals with collection and presentation of data in various forms, such as tables, graphs and diagrams and findings averages and other measures of data.

Inferential statistics deals with the testing of hypothesis and inference about population parameter is called Inferential Statistics.

**(ii) What is classification?**

**Answer:**

In statistics, classification is a process of grouping items or data into classes according to their attributes or characteristics.

**(iv) What are different methods for collection of Primary data?**

**Answer:**

- Direct Questionnaire
- Through SMS
- Through Telephone
- Through Social Media Platforms
- Through Poll

### (v) **What is Histogram?**

**Answer:**

Histogram is a graphical representation of a frequency or probability distribution of the data. In Histogram, we take range of values on x-axis whereas frequency of specific values is taken on y-axis.

### (vi) **Given that ***x = 10 + 5u, ∑fu= 46, ∑f = 125*. Find arithmetic mean.

*x = 10 + 5u, ∑fu= 46, ∑f = 125*. Find arithmetic mean.

**Solution:**

**(vii) Define median.**

**Answer:**

In measures of central tendency, Median is a type of average that calculates central point of the data. It is also called positional average. Specific data takes a part in the calculation of median. Its formulas for ungrouped and grouped data are given below:

**The formula for ungrouped data:**

**The formula for grouped data:**

**(viii) Distinguish between simple and composite index numbers.**

**Answer:**

In simple index number price or quantity of a single product is taken whereas in composite index, the price or quantity is taken related to multiple products.

**(ix) If Laspeyer’s index is 120 and Paasche’s index is 110, then find Fisher’s index.**

**Solution:**

**(x) Define random experiment.**

**Answer:**

Random experiment is an experiment that is performed in probability distribution in order to know the probability of a particular event.

**(xi) How many different permutations can be formed from the word “PAKPATTAN”**

__Solution__

## Extensive Questions

__Section C (Marks 16)__

**Note: Attempt any two questions. All questions carry equal marks. (2×8=16)**

**Q.3 Determine median and mode from the following frequency distribution.**

Age Last Birthday | 15–19 | 20–24 | 25–29 | 30–34 | 35–39 | 40–44 |

No of Persons | 4 | 20 | 38 | 24 | 10 | 4 |

__Solution__

Marks | f | Class Boundaries | X | C.F |

15—19 | 4 | 14.5–19.5 | 17 | 4 |

20—24 | 20 | 19.5–24.5 | 22 | 24 |

25—29 | 38 | 24.5–29.5 | 27 | 62 |

30—34 | 24 | 29.5–34.5 | 32 | 86 |

35—39 | 10 | 34.5–39.5 | 37 | 96 |

40—44 | 4 | 39.5–44.5 | 42 | 100 |

Sum | 100 | | | |

| ∑f=n | | | |

**Model Class = n/2 = 100/2 = 50 falls in C.F of 62 so data is:**

**L = 24.5, h = 5, f = 38, n/2 =100/2 = 50 & C = 24**

**Model Class: Maximum frequency is 38 so data for model class is:**

**L = 24.5, fm = 38, f1 = 20, f2 = 24 & h = 5**

**Q.4 Compute Chain indices from the following data of prices.**

Year | Wheat | Sugar | Ghee | Cotton |

1965 | 16 | 40 | 200 | 50 |

1966 | 20 | 50 | 250 | 60 |

1967 | 18 | 70 | 240 | 80 |

1968 | 25 | 80 | 300 | 100 |

__Solution__

Year | Wheat | Sugar | Ghee | Cotton | Median | Chain Index |

1965 | 16 | 40 | 200 | 50 | (40+50)/2=45 | 45 |

1966 |
=125 |
=125 |
=125 |
=120 | (125+125)/2 =125 | (45 x 125)/100 = 56.25 |

1967 |
= 90 |
= 140 |
= 96 |
= 133 | (96+133)/2=114.5 | (56.25 x 114.5)/100 =64.40 |

1968 |
=139 |
=114 |
=125 |
=125 | (125+125)/2=125 | (64.40 x 125)/100 = 80.5 |

**Q.5 Show that in a single throw with two dice, the chance of throwing more than 7 is equal to that of throwing less than 7 and hence find probability of throwing exactly 7.**

__Solution__

**Sample Space**

**All Possible Outcome**

1, 1 | 2, 1 | 3, 1 | 4, 1 | 5, 1 | 6, 1 |

1, 2 | 2, 2 | 3, 2 | 4, 2 | 5, 2 | 6, 2 |

1, 3 | 2, 3 | 3, 3 | 4, 3 | 5, 3 | 6, 3 |

1, 4 | 2, 4 | 3, 4 | 4, 4 | 5, 4 | 6, 4 |

1, 5 | 2, 5 | 3, 5 | 4, 5 | 5, 5 | 6, 5 |

1, 6 | 2, 6 | 3, 6 | 4, 6 | 5, 6 | 6, 6 |

__Sum Table__

2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 |

3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 |

4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 |

5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 |

6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 |

7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 |

__Events__

__Probabilities__

**Hence Probability of more than 7 is equals to the probability of less than 7**
