#### Chapter 22 Tabular Representation of Statistical Data R.D. Sharma Solutions for Class 9th Exercise 22.1

**Exercise 22.1**

**1. What do you understand by the word ''statistics'' in**

(i) Singular form ?

(ii) Plural form ?

**Solution**

(i) In singular form statistics may be defined as the science of collection, presentation, analysis and interpretation of numerical data.

(ii) In plural form statistics means numerical facts or observations collected with definite purpose.

For examples, the income and expenditure of persons in a particular locality, number of males and females in a particular town are statistics.

2. Describe some fundamental characteristic of statistics.

**Solution**

The plural form statistics has the simplest structure and the singular form statistics has many components. There is only structural difference between singular and plural form statistics. Some of the characteristics of a statistics are .

1. Statistics is a collection of observations. So, clearly a single observation cannot form a statistics.

2. Statistics are collected with definite purpose.

3. Statistics are comparable and classified into various types depending on their properties.

4. Statistics are expressed quantitatively and not qualitatively.

3. What are (i) primary data ? (ii) secondary data ? Which of the two - the primary or the secondary data − is more reliable and why ?

**Solution**

(i) When an investigator collects data himself with a definite plan or designs in his (her) mind, it is called primary data.

(ii) Data which are not originally collected rather obtained from published or unpublished sources are known as secondary data.

4. Why do we group data ?

**Solution**

To study the features of a collected data, the data must be arranged in a condensed form. There are a number of ways to arrange the data in condensed form, namely,

1. Serial order or alphabetical order

2. Ascending order

3. Descending order

But, if the number of observations is large, then arranging data in ascending or descending or serial order is a tedious job and it does not tell us much except perhaps the minimum(s) and maximum(s) of data. So to make it easily understandable and clear we condense the data into groups or table form.

5. Explain the meaning of the following terms:

(i) Variate

(ii) Class-integral

(iii) Class-size

(iv) Class-mark

(v) Frequency

(vi) Class limits

(vii) True class limits.

**Solution**

(i) Variate - Any character that can vary from one individual to another is called variate.

(ii) Class interval - In the data each group into which raw data is considered is called a class-interval.

(iii) Class-size - The difference between the true upper limit and lower limit is called the class size of that class size.

(iv) Class-mark -The middle value of the class is called as the class mark.Class mark = upper limit + lower limit / 2

(v) Frequency - The number of observations corresponding to class is called its frequency.

(vi) Class limits - Each class is bounded by two figures ,called the class limits .The figures on the left side of the classes are called lower limits while figures on the right side are called upper limits.

(vii) True class limits - If classes are inclusive.Eg:15-19,20-24,25-29….

Then, true lower limit of class = upper limit of class-0.5

Eg:- True limits of the class is 15-19 are 14.5 and 19.5

But if classes are exclusive like 10-20,20-30,30-40…

Here class limits and true class limits are the same.

6. The ages of ten students of a group are given below. The ages have been recorded in years and months:

True class limitsà 19.5-19.5,19.5-29.5,29.5-29.5

Class size =39.5-29.5 = 10

(iii) 100-120 , 120-140, 160-180

Here the class limits and true class limits are the same

Therefore class size = 120-100 = 20

(iv) 0-0.25,0.25-00.50,0.50-0.75

Here the class limits and true class limits are the same

Therefore class size = 0.25-0 = 0.25 .

(v) 5-5.01,5.01-5.02,5.02-5.03.

Here the class limits and true class limits are the same
