## Short Questions

__SECTION-B (Marks 24)__

**Q.2: Answer any eight parts from Section ‘B’ and any two questions from Section ‘C’ on the separately provided answer book. Write your answers neatly and legibly. (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)** Name any three sources of primary data.

**Answer:**

- Through Direct Questionnaire
- Through Email
- Through Telephone
- Through Public Social Media Poll

**(iii)** Find the class boundaries, midpoint, and width for each class.

- 293 – 353
- 11.8 – 14.7
- 3.13 – 3.93

**Answer:**

Classes | Class Boundaries | Mid-Point | Width |

293 – 353 | 292.5 – 353.5 | 323 | 60 |

11.8 – 14.7 | 11.75 – 14.75 | 13.25 | 2.9 |

3.13 – 3.93 | 3.125 – 3.935 | 3.53 | 0.8 |

**(iv) **What is a pie-chart?

__Answer__

A **pie chart** also called a circular chart is a statistical graphic chart that is divided into slices to illustrate numerical proportion. Total area of pie chart is about to 360 degree. Certain variable has multiple proportion can be shown graphically through pie chart.

**(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.

__Answer__

Sum of four added values = 720 – 500 = 220

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

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

**(vi)** The logarithms of 3 values of *x *are 1.7076, 1.6812, and 1.6532. Find the mean of *x *values.

**Solution:**

Log Values of X | X = Antilog of Log X |

1.7076 | 51 |

1.6812 | 48 |

1.6532 | 45 |

| ∑X= 144 |

**(vii) If ***l=28, fm = 25, f1 = 20, f2 = 18 and h = 7. *Compute mode.

*l=28, fm = 25, f1 = 20, f2 = 18 and h = 7.*

**Solution:**

**(viii) **Given ∑(X – 10) = 2.8, n=5, Calculate arithmetic mean.

**Solution**

**(ix) **Given that *∑poqo = 1430,* *∑p1qo = 1760, ∑p1q1 = 2110, and ∑poq1 = 1715.* Find Fisher’s Ideal Price Index.

## Extensive Questions

__Section C (Marks 16)__

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

**Q.3: **Calculate Mean, Median and Mode from the following distribution….

**Q.3: **Calculate Mean, Median and Mode from the following distribution:

Classes | 0—20 | 20—40 | 40—60 | 60—80 |

Frequency | 20 | 30 | 40 | 10 |

__Solution__

Class Limits | Frequency (f) | X | fX | C.f |

0—20 | 20 | 10 | 200 | 20 |

20—40 | 30 | 30 | 900 | 50 |

40—60 | 40 | 50 | 2000 | 90 |

60—80 | 10 | 70 | 700 | 100 |

Sum | 100 | | 3800 | |

| ∑f or n= | | ∑fX= | |

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

*L = 20, h = 20, f = 30, n/2 =100/2 = 50 & C = 20*

*Model Class: Maximum frequency is 40 so data for model class is:*

*L = 40, fm = 40, f1 = 30, f2 = 10 & h = 20*
