**(i) Define population and sample.**

**Answer:**

__Population__

Whole group under discussion is called population for example the whole strength of college student

or whole population of a certain district etc.

**(iii) Describe the importance of statistics in science.**

**Answer: **Statistics is the backbone of scientific inquiry. It helps to analyze data, make conclusions and test hypothesis in every field of science. It helps to conclude reliable findings and increase or enhance knowledge.

**Answer:**

- Summarization
- Pattern Recognition
- Comparison

**(v) Arithmetic mean of 20 values is 25. By adding 4 more values the mean becomes 30. Find the four values if the ratio between these values is 1:2:3:4**

**Solution**

**Sum of four added values = 720 – 500 = 220**

**Ratio of four values = 1:2:3:4**

**Sum of ratios = 1+2+3+4=10**

**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. Simple Index can be calculated through fixed base and chain base method whereas composite index further has two types namely weighted and unweighted index.

**Modal Class for Median**

*n/2 = 40/2=20 falls in c.f of 29 so l = 144.5, h=9, f=12 & c = 17*

**Modal Class for Mode**

*Maximum frequency is 12 so l = 144.5, fm = 12, f1 = 9, f2 = 5 & h = 9*

**Q.5: **(a) The following scores are made by two batsmen A and B in a series of innings…………Which batsman is better as a run getter?

**Q.5: **(a) The following scores are made by two batsmen A and B in a series of innings.

A | 84 | 29 | 12 | 15 | 6 | 73 | 7 | 19 | 199 | 36 |

B | 13 | 0 | 47 | 12 | 76 | 48 | 4 | 51 | 37 | 48 |

Which batsman is better as a run getter?

**Solution**

A X1 | 84 | 29 | 12 | 15 | 6 | 73 | 7 | 19 | 199 | 36 | ∑X1= 480 |

B X2 | 13 | 0 | 47 | 12 | 76 | 48 | 4 | 51 | 37 | 48 | ∑X1= 336 |

**Result**

Mean of Batsman A is 48 which is greater than the mean of batsman B 33.6 so Batsman A is better run getter than Batsman B.

**(b) Compute base year weighted and current year weighted price index numbers for the given data: ***∑poqo = 35310, ∑p1qo = 41140, ∑p1q1 = 46707, ∑poq1 = 39644*

*∑poqo = 35310, ∑p1qo = 41140, ∑p1q1 = 46707, ∑poq1 = 39644*
