## Multiple choice Questions

Question 3
Find x and y so that the ordered data set has a mean of 42 and a median of 35.
17, 22, 26, 29, 34, x, 42, 67, 70, y
(a) x=34, y=77
(b) x=36, y=77
(c) x=77, y=34
(d) x=77, y=36
Solution
(b)

Question 4
For what value of n, the mode of the following data is 18?
2, 5, 3, 18, 5, 18, 6, 5, n, 7, 18
(a) 18
(b) 5
(c) It can be any value
(d) None of these
Solution
(a)
There are three 5 and three 18.
For mode to be 18, n=18

Question 5
For drawing a frequency polygon of a continuous frequency distribution, we plot the Points whose ordinates are the frequencies of the respective classes and abscissae are respectively:
(a) Class marks of the classes
(b) Upper limits of preceding classes
(c) Lower limits of the classes
(d) Upper limits of the classes
Solution
(a)

Question 6
There are 150 numbers. Each number is subtracted from 60 and the mean of the numbers so obtained is found to be –4.5. The mean of the given numbers is
(a) 400
(b) 34.5
(c) 64.5
(d) 55.5
Solution
(d)
Mean of number -60=-4.5
So mean of number is 55.5

Question 7
The median and mean of the first 10 natural numbers are,
(a) 5.5,5.5
(b) 5.5,6
(c) 5,6
(d) None of these
Solution
(a)
Mean =5.5
Median is  mean of 5 and 6 th term, So 5

Question 8
Anand says that the median of 3, 14, 19, 20, 11 is 19. What doesn’t the Anand understand about finding the median?
(a) The dataset should be ascending order
(b) Highest no in the dataset is the median
(c) Average of lowest and highest is the median
(d) None of these
Solution
(a)

Question 9
The following observations are arranged in ascending order :
20, 23, 42, 53, x, x + 2, 70, 75, 82, 96
If the median is 63, find the value of x.
(a) 62
(b) 64
(c) 60
(d) None of these
Solution
(a)
Median is mean of 5 and 6 term
So x+1=63
x=62

Question 10
The mean of 20 observations was 60. It was detected on rechecking that the value of 125 was wrongly copied as 25 for computation of mean. Find the correct mean
(a) 67
(b) 66
(c) 65
(d) None of the above
Solution
(c)
Let x be the sum of observation of 19 numbers leaving 125,
Then
$x+25=20 \times 60=1200$
Now
$x+125=20 \times y=20y$
Subtracting
$125-25=20y-1200$
$20y=1300$
$y=65$
