**Question 1:**

Give five examples of data that you can collect from day to day life.

**Answer 1:**

In our day to day life, we can collect the following data.

1. Number of females per 1000 males in various states of our country

2. Weights of students of our class

3. Production of wheat in the last 10 years in our country

4. Number of plants in our locality

5. Rainfall in our city in the last 10 years

**Question 2:**

Classify the data in Q1 above as primary or secondary data.

**Answer 2:**

The information which is collected by the investigator himself with a definite objective in his mind is called as primary data whereas when the information is gathered from a source which already had the information stored, it is called as secondary data. It can be observed that the data in 1, 3, and 5 is secondary data and the data in 2 and 4 is primary data.

**Question 1:**

The blood groups of 30 students of Class VIII are recoded as follows:

A, B, O, O, AB, O, A, O, B, A, O, B, A, O, O,

A, AB, O, A, A, O, O, AB, B, A, O, B, A, B, O.

Represent this data in the form of a frequency distribution table. Which is the most common, and which is the rarest, blood group among these students?

**Answer 1:**

It can be observed that 9 students have their blood group as A, 6 as B, 3 as AB, and 12 as O.

Therefore, the blood group of 30 students of the class can be represented as follows.

It can be observed clearly that the most common blood group and the rarest blood group among these students is O and AB respectively as 12 (maximum number of students) have their blood group as O, and 3 (minimum number of students) have their blood group as AB.

**Question 2:**

The distance (in km) of 40 engineers from their residence to their place of work were found as follows:

5,3,10,20,25,11,13,7,12,31,19,10,12,17,18,11,32,17,16,2,7,9,7,8,3,5,12,15,18,3,12,14,2,9,6,15,15,7,6,12

Construct a grouped frequency distribution table with class size 5 for the data given above taking the first interval as 0 - 5 (5 not included). What main feature do you observe from this tabular representation?

**Answer 2:**

It is given that a grouped frequency distribution table of class size 5 has to be constructed. Therefore, the class intervals will be 0 âˆ’ 5, 5 âˆ’ 10, 10 âˆ’ 15, 15 âˆ’20â€¦

By observing the data given as above, a grouped frequency distribution table can be constructed as follows.

It can be observed that there are very few engineers whose homes are at more than or equal to 20 km distance from their work place. Most of the engineers have their workplace up to 15 km distance from their homes.

(ii) It can be concluded that more than 50% of the students are shorter than 165 cm.

**Question 5:**

A study was conducted to find out the concentration of sulphur dioxide in the air in parts per million (ppm) of a certain city. The data obtained for 30 days is as follows:

0.03 , 0.08 , 0.08 , 0.09 , 0.04 , 0.17, 0.16 , 0.05 , 0.02 , 0.06 , 0.18 , 0.20, 0.11 , 0.08 , 0.12 , 0.13 , 0.22 , 0.07, 0.08 , 0.01 , 0.10 , 0.06 , 0.09 , 0.18, 0.11 , 0.07 , 0.05 , 0.07 , 0.01 , 0.04

(i) Make a grouped frequency distribution table for this data with class intervals as 0.00 - 0.04, 0.04 - 0.08, and so on.

(ii) For how many days, was the concentration of sulphur dioxide more than 0.11 parts per million?

**Answer 5:**

Taking class intervals as 0.00, âˆ’0.04, 0.04, âˆ’0.08, and so on, a grouped frequency table can be constructed as follows.

The number of days for which the concentration of SO_{2} is more than 0.11 is the number of days for which the concentration is in between 0.12 âˆ’ 0.16, 0.16 âˆ’ 0.20, 0.20 âˆ’ 0.24.

Required number of days = 2 + 4 + 2 = 8

Therefore, for 8 days, the concentration of SO_{2} is more than 0.11 ppm.

**Question 2:**

The following data on the number of girls (to the nearest ten) per thousand boys in different sections of Indian society is given below.

Section | Number of girls per thousand boys |

Scheduled Caste (SC) | 940 |

Scheduled Tribe (ST) | 970 |

Non SC/ST | 920 |

Backward districts | 950 |

Non-backward districts | 920 |

Rural | 930 |

Urban | 910 |

(i) Represent the information above by a bar graph.

(ii) In the classroom discuss what conclusions can be arrived at from the graph.

**Answer 2:**

(i) By representing section (variable) on x-axis and number of girls per thousand boys on y-axis, the graph of the information given above can be constructed by choosing an appropriate scale (1 unit = 100 girls for *y*-axis)

Here, all the rectangle bars are of the same length and have equal spacing in between them.

(ii) It can be observed that maximum number of girls per thousand boys (i.e., 970) is for ST and minimum number of girls per thousand boys (i.e., 910) is for urban.

Also, the number of girls per thousand boys is greater in rural areas than that in urban areas, backward districts than that in non-backward districts, SC and ST than that in non-SC/ST.
