PART – A

Answer all the questions.                                                           (10 x 2 = 20 Marks)

  1. Define dichotomous classification and give an example.
  2. If A and B are two attributes with N = 200, (A) = 120, (B) = 180 and

(AB) = 100, find  (aB), (Ab),  (ab)   and   (a).

  1. If A,B and C are three independent events write the expressions for the
    probability of getting

(i)  at least one event                       (ii)  exactly one event

PART – B

Answer any Five questions.                                                       (5 x 8 = 40 Marks)

  1. For n attributes show that (A1 . A2 …….. An) ³ (A1+ A2 +……+ An ) – (n – 1) N.
  2. Check whether the following data is consistent:

N = 900,   (A) = 210,     (B) = 300,        (C) = 420,        (AB) = 150,     (AC) = 175

(BC) = 230  and (ABC) = 100.

  1. Consider 3 urns. Urn I contains 5W, 6 R.  Urn II contains 7W, 5 R and Urn III contains 8W, 6R marbles.  One marble is chosen from each urn.  Find the probability of having

(i)  2W, 1R         (ii) 1W, 2R      (iii)  3W           (iv)  3R.

  1. If P (A) = ¼ , P (B) = ½ and P (AB) = 1/8, find

(i)  P (A | B)     (ii)  P (B | A)      (iii)  P (Ac | B) and     (iv)  P (A | Bc)

  1. If X has the p.d.f.    f (x)  =     3 (1 – x)2 , 0 < x <1, 0 elsewhere ,

find E (X) and V (X).

  1. (a) Write any two applications of Poisson distribution.
  • If P(X = 2) = 3 P (X = 4) + 2 P (X = 6), find mean, standard deviation and variance of X.                                                                                   (2+6)
  1. In a large city A, 20% of a random sample of 900 school children had defective eye sight. In other large city B, 15% of a random sample of 1600 children had the same effect.  Is the difference between the two proportions significant?  Test at 5% significance level.
  2. A certain stimulus administered to each of the 12 patients resulted in the following increase of blood pressure:

5,  2,  8,  -1,  3,  0,  -2,  1,  5,  0,  4 and 6

Can it be concluded that the stimulus will, in general, be accompanied by an increase in blood pressure?  Use 1% significance level.   (t – table value is 1.80)

PART – C

Answer any Two questions.                                                       (2 x 20 = 40 Marks)

  1. (a) When two attributes A and B are said to be independent?

(b)  Given the following data, find the remaining class frequencies:

N   = 25713  ,  (A)   = 1618   (B)  = 2015

(C) = 770      , (AB) = 587,   (AC)  =  428

(BC) = 335   ,  (ABC) =  156                                                  (2 + 18)

  1. (a) If X is a normal variate with mean 30 and standard deviation 5,  find the probability that (i) 26 < X < 40,           (ii)  X > 45      (iii)    |X – 30|    > 5

(b)    In a distribution exactly normal, 10.03% of the items are under 25 kilogram weight and 89.97% of the items are under 70 kilogram weight.  What are the mean and standard deviation of the distribution?   (10+10)

  1. The following table gives quality rating of service stations by five professional raters:

SERVICE STATION

RATER           1         2         3         4         5         6         7         8         9         10
