D

None of these

Explanation

Marks obtained|No. of students|Cumulative frequency|
0-10|2|2|
10-20|18|20|
20-30|30|50|
30-40|45|95|
40-50|35|130|
50-60|20|150|
60-70|6|156|
70-80|3|159|

Here n = 159, which is odd.
Median number, which is in the class 30-40 (see the row of cumulative frequency 95, which contains 80).
Hence median class is 30-40.
We have l = Lower limit of median class = 30
f = Frequency of median class = 45
C = Total of all frequencies preceding median class = 50
i = Width of class interval of median class = 10
Required median
.

Q 3.

Correct4

Incorrect-1

Consider the following statements (1) Mode can be computed from histogram (2) Median is not independent of change of scale (3) Variance is independent of change of origin and scale Which of these is/are correct

A

(1), (2) and (3)

B

Only (2)

C

Only (1) and (2)

Only (1)

Explanation

It is obvious.

Q 4.

Correct4

Incorrect-1

The sum of two weights of an Atwood's machine is 16 lbs. The heavier weight descends 64 ft in 4 seconds. The value of weights in lbs are

10, 6

B

9, 7

C

8, 8

D

12, 4

Explanation

Let the two weights be m1 and (lbs.)
.....(i)
Now, the distance moved by the heavier weight in 4 seconds from rest is 64 ft.
If acceleration = f, then
But ...(ii)
From (i) and (ii), lbs,

Q 5.

Correct4

Incorrect-1

The following data gives the distribution of height of students Height (in cm)|160|150|152|161|156|154|155| Number of students|12|8|4|4|3|3|7| The median of the distribution is

A

154

155

C

160

D

161

Explanation

Arranging the data in ascending order of magnitude, we obtain
Height (in cm)|150|152|154|155|156|160|161|
Number Of Students|8|4|3|7|3|12|4|
Cumulative frequency |8|12|15|22|25|37|41|
Here, total number of items is 41, i.e. an odd number. Hence, the median is th i.e. 21st item.
From cumulative frequency table, we find that median i.e. 21st item is 155.
(All items from 16 to 22nd are equal, each = 155)

Q 6.

Q 11.

Correct4

Incorrect-1

A uniform beam of length 2a rests in equilibrium against a smooth vertical plane and over a smooth peg at a distance h from the plane. If θ be the inclination of the beam to the vertical, then sin3θ is

B

C

D

Explanation

Let AB be a rod of length 2a and weight W. It rests against a smooth vertical wall at A and over peg C, at a distance h from the wall. The rod is in equilibrium under the following forces :

(i) The weight W at G


(ii) The reaction R at A

(iii) The reaction S at C perpendicular to AB.
Since the rod is in equilibrium. So, the three force are concurrent at O.
In ΔACK, we have, sin θ =
In ΔACO, we have, sin θ =
In ΔAGO, we have sin θ = ;
