$48$, $32$, $36$, $42$, $38$, $35$, $39$, $49$, $34$, $14$, $32$, $37$, $31$ What should he expect in the next weekly test out of the following?
(i) between $40 - 50$
(ii) between $30 - 40$

  1. Between $40-50$

  2. Between $30-40$

  3. Data insufficient

  4. None of these


Correct Option: B
 12  24  36  48  60  72
 24  48  60  72  50  30
 50  45  50  75  50  34

The number of students in a quiz competition scores are in the table. How many students scored $50$ marks?

  1. $4$

  2. $5$

  3. $8$

  4. $3$


Correct Option: A
Explanation:
 Scores  Frequency
 12  1
 24  2
 30  1
 34  1
 36  1
 45  1
 48  2
 50  4
 60  2

So, there are $4$ students scored $50$ marks.

Consider the following frequency distribution:

Class $0-10$ $0-20$ $0-30$ $0-40$ $0-50$
Frequency $3$ $8$ $14$ $20$ $25$

What is the above frequency distribution known as?

  1. Cumulative distribution in more than type

  2. Cumulative distribution in less than type

  3. Continuous frequency distribution

  4. None of the above


Correct Option: D

Consider the following statements :
1. A continuous random variable can take all values in an interval.
2. A random variable which takes a finite number of values is necessarily discrete.
3. Construction of a frequency distribution is based on data which are discrete.
Which of the above statements are correct ?

  1. 1 and 2 only

  2. 2 and 3 only

  3. 1 and 3 only

  4. 1, 2 and 3


Correct Option: A

The marks (out of 10) obtained by 28 students in a Mathematics test are listed as below :
8, 1, 2, 6, 5, 5, 5, 0, 1, 9, 7, 8, 0, 5, 8, 3, 0, 8, 10, 10, 3, 4, 8, 7, 8, 9, 2, 0
The number of students who obtained marks more than or equal to 5 is

  1. 13

  2. 15

  3. 16

  4. 17


Correct Option: D
Explanation:

Arranging the given marks in ascending order we get,

$0,0,0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3,4,5,5,5,5,6,7,7,8,8,8,8,8,8,9,9,10,10$
Students who obtained marks more than or equal $5$ are,
$5,5,5,5,6,7,7,8,8,8,8,8,8,9,9,10,10$
$\therefore$  Number of students who obtained marks more or equal to $5$ $=17$

The frequency distribution of marks obtained by $60$ students of a class is given.

X $30-34$ $40-44$ $45-49$ $50-54$ $55-59$ $60-64$
f $3$ $5$ $12$ $18$ $14$ $62$


Find mode of the distribution.

  1. $42.50$

  2. $52.50$

  3. $52.05$

  4. $42.05$


Correct Option: C
Explanation:

The given class intervals should be converted into class boundaries. Since the distribution is regular, the modal class, by inspection, is $49.5-54.5$
Further, $L _m=49.5, f _m=18, f _1=12, f _2=12, h=5$
Mode, $Z=49.5+\displaystyle\frac{18-12}{(2\times 18)-12-14}\times 5=52.5$

The median and mode of frequency distribution are 525 and 500, then mean of same frequency distribution is -

  1. 75

  2. 107.5

  3. 527.5

  4. 537.5


Correct Option: D
Explanation:

$Median = 525, Mode = 500$
$Mode = 3 median - 2 mean$
$500=3(525)-2 mean$
$2 mean=1575-500$
$mean=\frac {1075}{2}=537.5$

Mode of distribution
$Marks\begin{bmatrix} 4 & 5 & 6 & 7 & 8 \end{bmatrix}\ No\quad of\quad students\quad \begin{bmatrix} 3 & 5 & 10 & 6 & 1 \end{bmatrix}$

  1. 6

  2. 10

  3. 8

  4. 4


Correct Option: A

The cumulative frequency distribution corresponding to 20 percentile is ______.

  1. 10%

  2. 20%

  3. 25%

  4. 33%


Correct Option: B

  1. (6298 - 6302)

  2. (6301 - 6308)

  3. (6290 - 4310)

  4. (6288 - 6315)


Correct Option: A
