Q. 3. (a) Define mutually exclusive events. State and prove the theorem of addition of probabilities concerning mutually exclusive events. (6)

(b) Show that the multiplication law P(A Ʌ B)=P(A/B)P(B), established for two events, may be generalized to three events as follows; (6)
P(A Ʌ B Ʌ C)=P(A/B Ʌ C) P(B/C) P(C)

(c) There are three coins, identical in appearance, one of which is ideal and the other two biased with probabilities 1/3 and 2/3 respectively for a head. One coin is taken at random and tossed twice. If a head appears both the times, what is the probability that the ideal coin was chosen? (8) (20)

Q. 4. (a) (i) Explain briefly how the principle of least squares is used to find a regression line based on a sample of size n. Illustrate on a rough sketch the distance whose squares are minimized, taking care to distinguish the dependent and independent variables.

(b) The following means, standard deviations and correlations are found for

(c) What do you understand by nonparametric tests? Why such tests are also called distribution-free tests? Give the advantages and disadvantages of nonparametric tests over parametric tests. Describe the Wilcoxon signed-rank test for one sample. How does it differ from the sign test? (8) (20)


Q. 5. (a) Explain what you understand by the probability sampling and non probability sampling. What are their relative advantages and disadvantages? (6)

(b) What is a sampling distribution? Describe the properties of the sampling distribution of the means. (6)

(c ) A finite population consists of the numbers 2, 4 and 6. Form a sampling distribution of sample mean, when random samples of size 4 is drawn with replacement. Also verify its properties. (8) (20)

Q. 6. (a) Under what condition is the sampling distribution of 𝑠12 /𝑠22 an F-distribution? Explain the relationship between the F and t distributions, between the F and Chi-Square distributions. (6)

(b) The proportion of families buying milk from company A in a certain city is believed to be p=0.6. If a random sample of 10 families shows that 3 or less buy milk from company A, we shall reject the hypothesis that p=0.6 in favour of the alternative p<0.6. Evaluate α if p=0.6, evaluate β for the alternatives p=0.3, p=0.4 and p=0.5. (6)

(c ) Define a Chi-square random variable and its density function. Discuss the important properties of Chi-square distribution. Show that the Chi-square distribution tends to normal distribution for large degrees of freedom. (8) (20)

Q. 7. (a) Describe the Randomized Complete Block Design, its model and analysis. What are its advantages and disadvantages? (6)

(b) Compare Randomized Complete Block experiments with Completely Randomized experiments, comparing their respective advantages and relative efficiency, with illustrations. (6)

(c ) Three varieties A, B and C of a crop are tested in a randomized block design with four replications, the layout being given below. The plot yields in pounds are also indicated therein. Analyze the experimental yields and state your conclusions. (8) (20)



1 A 32.1 C 34.2 B 31.7
2 C 30.7 A 17.0 B 32.7
3 A 40.8 B 25.3 C 48.2
4 B 47.9 C 59.6 A 26.8

Q. 8. (a) Define gross and net production rates. Explain how would you compute the net production rate and what interpretations can be made if it is 1, less than 1 or greater than 1. (6)

(b) Explain with suitable illustrations the object of standardizing various vital statistics relating to births, deaths and marriages. (6)

(c ) Compute the gross and net reproduction rates for the following data: (8) (20)

Age-group (years) Female Population (000) Female births Probability of survival

    290535 239319There is an ending. Just remember that I meant for this to be an art game. I do feel like I spent an inordinate amount of time on the much more traditional gameplay elements, which might make the meaning with the game a bit unclear. In the event you mess about with it though, youll uncover it. 1559

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal.
    I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Internet
    explorer. Outstanding Blog!
