If X is a Poisson variate and p(X = 3) > p(X = 2) then find the

minimum value of mean.

Ten individuals are chosen at random, from a normal population

and their weights (in kg) are found to be 63, 63, 66, 67, 68, 69,
70, 70, 71 and 71. In the light of this data set, test the claim that
the mean weight in population is 66 kg at 5% level of

I bought two packets of apples, 25 in each packet. The mean and

standard deviation of weights of apples in the first packet are 235
and 3; and the mean and standard deviation for the second packet
are 237.5 and 4. Write down the mean and standard deviation
formulae for all the fifty apples and compute them.

Does each of the following statements pertain to an estimate or an

estimator? If the statement pertains to an estimate is it an interval
estimate or point estimate? If the statement pertains to an
estimator write the estimator.

computer Science textbook will sell about 9000 copies in
(ii) A census prefers the median to the mean as a measure of
central tendency for the income distribution of families in a
standard metropolitan city.
(iii) A stock market analyst, who appears on the television
programme, estimates that the price of a particular common
stock will be between 50 and 60 at the end of six months.

A building has 11 flats. A sample of 4 flats is to be selected using

(i) linear systematic sampling and
(ii) circular systematic sampling.
List all possible samples for each of these cases separately.

process with mean 6 and standard deviation 4.

There are 1000 pages in a book out of which 100 pages are
defective. What is the probability that out of first 50 pages 10
pages will be defective?

Draw the appropriate control chart and interpret the result.

A random sample of 170 boys from 8502 boys in an area showed

that 21 had some nutritional deficiency. Estimate the proportion
of nutritionally deficient boys and the standard error of your
estimate. Give the confidence interval also.

(5 Marks)


A die is tossed twice. Getting an odd number in at least a toss is

termed as a success. Find the probability distribution of number
of successes. Also find expected number of successes.

(5 Marks)


Find the probability that at most 5 defective fuses will be found

in a box of 200, if experience shows that 20% of such fuses are

(5 Marks)


A sample of 900 members has a mean 3.4 cm and standard

deviation 2.61 cm. Test whether the sample is from a large
population of mean 3.25 cm and standard deviation 2.61 cm. If
the population is normal and its mean is unknown, find the 95%
confidence interval for population mean.

(5 Marks)


The mean yield for one acre plot is 662 kg with a s.d. 32 kg.

of 1000 plots would your expect to have yield between 600 and
750 kg.
