Question No: 21 ( Marks: 2 )
Define the Null Hypothesis.

ANS: Null hypothesis is a scenario which explain a given set of data. It is tested to determine whether data provides sufficient reasons to pursue some alternative hypothesis.
It is a hypothesis that states there is no difference between 2 or more sets of data.

Question No: 22 ( Marks: 2 )
A coin can be tossed in 3 ways. A die can be thrown in 6 ways. A coin and a die together can be thrown in …3 X 6 = 18……….ways.

Question No: 23 ( Marks: 2 )
Find harmonic mean (HM) of 10,12,14,17.
ANS:
Harmonic mean,HM = n/(1/x1 + 1/x2 + 1/x3 + 1/x4 +…… +1/xn)

N= 4
X1 = 10
X2 = 12
X3 = 14
X4 = 17
1/x1 + 1/x2 + 1/x3 + 1/x4 = 1/10 + 1/12+ 1/14+ 1/17 = 0.2385
Harmonic mean = 4/0.2385= 16.77

Question No: 24 ( Marks: 3 )
Find proportion of bags which have weight in excess of 505 g.
Mean = 500.
StDev = 2.5 g
(For z=2.00 probability is 0.4772)

Question No: 25 ( Marks: 3 )
Given for a frequency distribution mode = 18, mean = 21.Calculate median . Using these values comment on skewness of distribution.
ANS:
We know that,
Mean-mode= 3(mean- median)
Median= (2*mean+mode)/3
Since,
Mean= 21
Mode= 18
So,
Median = (2*21+18)/3
= (42+18)/3 = 60/3 = 10
The distribution is Moderately skewed and unimodal distribution.

Question No: 26 ( Marks: 3 )
How many different ways can you select 2 letters from the set of letters: X, Y, and Z? (Hint: In this problem, order is NOT important; i.e., XY is considered the same selection as YX.)
ANS:
Total number of letters = 3
Letters taken at a time = 2
Number of ways in which 2 letters can be selected out of 3 = 3C2 = 3! / 2!(3-2)!
=3*2*1/ 2
= 3

Question No: 27 ( Marks: 5 )
How many possible permutations can be formed from the word MATHEMATICS?
ANS:
Total number of alphabets in mathematics = 11
M = 2
A = 2
T = 2
H = 1
E = 1
I = 1
C = 1
S = 1
Permutations = 11! / 2! * 2! * 2! *1! * 1! * 1* 1! * 1!
= 11! / 8 = 4,989,600
