**Question 1.**

**Define the following terms :**

**(i) Observations**

**(ii) Raw data**

**(iii) Frequency of an observation**

**(iv) Frequency distribution**

**(v) Discrete frequency distribution**

**(vi) Grouped frequency distribution**

**(vii) Class-interval**

**(viii) Class-size**

**(ix) Class limits**

**(x) True class limits**

**Solution:**

**(i) Observations :** Each entry in the given data is called an observation. ‘

**(ii) Raw data:** A collection of observations by an observer, is called raw data.

**(iii) Frequency of an observation :** The number of times an observation occurs in the given data is called its frequency.

**(iv) Frequency distribution :** The presentations of given data in order of magnitude ascending or descending, is called the frequency distribution.

**(v) Discrete frequency distribution:** When the given data is represented by tally marks after arranging it in an order. This kind of distribution is called discrete frequency distribution.

**(vi) Grouped frequency distribution:** If the number of data is large, and the difference between the greatest and the smallest observation is large, then we represent then in groups or classes. Such representation of data is called grouped frequency distribution.

**(vii) Class intervals:** The difference between the upper limit and lower limit of a class is called class interval.

**(viii) Class-size :** Class intervals are also called the class size. Each size of the same intervals

**(ix) Class limits :** Every class has two limits : upper limit and lower limit.

**(x) True class limits or Exclusive limits :** When the upper limit of one is the lower limit of the next interval then these are call true class limits.

**Question 2.**

**The final marks in mathematics of 30 students are as follows :**

**53, 61, 48, 60, 78, 68, 55, 100, 67, 90, 75, 88,77,37,84,58,60,48,62,56,44,58,52,64, 98, 59, 70, 39, 50, 60**

**(i) Arrange these marks in the ascending order, 30 to 39 one group, 40 to 49 second group etc.**

**Now answer the following:**

**(ii) What is the highest score ?**

**(iii) What is the lowest score ?**

**(iv) What is the range ?**

**(v) If 40 is the pass mark how many have failed ?**

**(vi) How many have scored 75 or more ?**

**(vii) Which observations between 50 and 60 have not actually appeared ?**

**(viii) How many have scored less than 50 ?**

**Solution:**

**(i)** Arranging the given data in ascending order.

70 to 79 : 70, 75, 77, 78

80 to 89 : 84, 88

90 to 99 : 90, 98

100 to 109 : 100

**(ii)** Highest score is 100

**(iii)** Lowest score is 37

**(iv)** Range is 100 – 37 = 63

**(v)** If 40 is pass marks then number of failed candidates will be = 2

**(vi)** Number of students who scored 75 or more = 8

**(vii)** Between 50 and 60, the observations 51, 54, 57 do not appear.

**(viii)** Number of students who scored less than 50 = 5
