**Question 1.**

**Find the mode of the following data :**

**(i) 3, 5, 7, 4, 5, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 5, 3, 5, 3, 6, 9, 7, 4**

**(ii) 3, 3, 7, 4, 5, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 5, 3, 5, 3, 6, 9, 7, 4**

**(iii) 15, 8, 26, 25, 24, 15, 18, 20, 24, 15, 19, 15**

**Solution:**

We see that 5 occurs in maximum times which is 5

∴ Mode = 5

we see that 3 occurs in maximum times i.e. 5

∴ Mode = 3

Here we see that 15 occurs in maximum times i.e. 54

∴ Mode = 15

**Question 2.**

**The shirt sizes worn by a group of 200 persons, who bought the shirt from a store, are as follows :**

**Find the model shirt size worn by the group.**

**Solution:**

We see that frequency of 40 is maximum which is 41

∴Mode = 40

**Question 3.**

**Find the mode of the following distribution.**

**Solution:**

**Question 4.**

**Compare the modal ages of two groups of students appearing for an entrance test :**

**Solution:**

**(i) For group A**

We see that class 18-20 has the maximum frequency

∴ It is a modal class

**(ii) For group B**

We see that class 18-20 has the maximum frequency

∴ It is a modal class

**Question 5.**

**The marks in science of 80 students of class X are given below: Find the mode of the marks obtained by the students in science.**

**Solution:**

We see that class 50-60 has the maximum frequency 20

∴ It is a modal class

**Question 6.**

**The following is the distribution of height of students of a certain class in a certain city :**

**Find the average height of maximum number of students.**

**Solution:
**Writing the classes in exclusive form,

Here model class is 165.5 – 168.5

and l = 165.5, h = 3, f= 142, f

_{1}= 118, f

_{2}= 127

**Question 7.**

T**he following table shows the ages of the patients admitted in a hospital during a year :**

**Find the mode and the mean of the data given above. Compare and interpret the two measures of central tendency.**

**Solution:**

(i) We see that class 35-45 has the maximum frequency 23

∴ It is a modal class

= 35.375 = 35.37 years

We see that mean is less than its mode

**Question 8.**

**The following data gives the information on the observed lifetimes (in hours) of 225 electrical components :**

**Determine the modal lifetimes of the components.**

**Solution:
**

We see that class 60-80 has the maximum frequency 61

∴ It is the modal class

Here l = 60, f= 6, f

_{1}= 52, f

_{2}= 38,h = 20

∴ Modal of life time (in hrs.)

**Question 9.**

**The following table gives the daily income of 50 workers of a factory :**

**Find the mean, mode and median of the above data. (C.B.S.E. 2009)**

**Solution:**

Here i = 20 and AM = 150

(ii) Max frequency = 14

∴ Model class = 120 – 140

**Question 10.**

**The following distribution gives the state-wise teacher-student ratio in higher secondary schools of India. Find the mode and mean of this data. Interpret, the two measures:**

**Solution:
**Let assumed mean (A) = 32.5

**(i)**We see that the class 30-35 has the maximum frequency

∴ It is the modal class

Here l = 30,f = 10, f

_{1}= 9, f

_{2}= 3, h = 5

**Question 11.**

**Find the mean, median and mode of the following data:**

**Solution:**

Let assumed mean (A) =175

**(i)** Here N = 25, \(\frac { 5 }{ 3 }\) = \(\frac { 25 }{ 2 }\) = 12.5 or 13 which lies in the class 150-200

l= 150, F= 10, f= 6, h = 50

**Question 12.**

**A student noted the number of cars passing through a spot on a road for 100 periods each of 3 minutes and summarised it in the table given below. Find the mode of the data.**

**Solution:**

We see that class 40-50 has the maximum frequency

∴ It is a modal class

**Question 13.**

**The following frequency distribution gives the monthly consumption of electricity of 68 consumers of a locality. Find the median, mean and mode of the data and compare them:**

**Solution:
**Let assumed mean (A) = 135

Here N = 68 , \(\frac { N }{ 2 }\) = \(\frac { 68 }{ 2 }\) = 34

**Question 14.**

**100 surnames were randomly picked up from a local telephone directory and the frequency distribution of the number of letters in the English alphabets in the surnames was obtained as follows:**

**Determine the median number of letters in the surnames. Find the mean number of letters in the surnames. Also, And the modal size of the surnames.**

**Solution:
**Let Assumed mean (A) = 8.5

**(i)**Here N = 100, \(\frac { N }{ 2 }\) = \(\frac { 100 }{ 2 }\) = 50 which lies in the class 7-10

Here l = 7, F = 36, f= 40, h = 3

**Question 15.**

**Find the mean, median and mode of the following data (C.B.S.E. 2008)**

**Solution:**

Let assumed mean A = 70

**(i)** Here N = 50, then \(\frac { N }{ 2 }\) = \(\frac { 50 }{ 2 }\) = 25 which lies in the class 60-80

∴ l= 60, F= 24, f = 12 , h = 20

**Question 16.**

**The following data gives the distribution of total monthly household expenditure of 200 families of a village. .Find the modal monthly expenditure of the families. Also, find the mean monthly expenditure:**

**Solution:**

**(i)** We see that the c ass 1500-2000 has maximum frequency 40

∴ It is a modal class

Here l = 1500, f = 40 , f_{1} = 24 , f_{2} = 33 , h =500

**Question 17.**

**The given distribution shows the number of runs scored by some top batsmen of the world in one-day international cricket matches.**

**Find the mode of the data.**

**Solution:**

We see that class 4000-5000 has the maximum frequency 18

∴It is a modal class

**Question 18.**

**The frequency distribution table of agriculture holdings in a village is given below:**

**Find the modal agriculture holdings of the village.**

**Solution:**

Here the maximum class frequency is 80,

and the class corresponding to this frequency is 5-7.

So, the modal class is 5-7.

l (lower limit of modal class) = 5

f_{1} (frequency of the modal class) = 80

f_{0} (frequency of the class preceding the modal class) = 45

f_{2}(frequency of the class succeeding the modal class) = 55

h (class size) = 2

Hence, the modal agricultural holdings of the village is 6.2 hectares.

**Question 19.**

The monthly income of 100 families are given as below:

**Solution:**

In a given data, the highest frequency is 41, which lies in the interval 10000-15000.

Here, l = 10000,f_{1} = 41, f_{0} = 26,f_{2} = 16 and h = 5000
