68:  

Given

X = 0.85y, Y = 0.89x, σz = 3, find σy

A.

3.07

B.

2.03

C.

4.06

D.

1.03

 
 

Option: A

Explanation :

Regression coefficient of X and Y or

bxy = r x σxy = 0.85

or 0.87 x 3/σy = 0.85

or 2.61/σy = 85

or 0.85 σy = 2.61

or σy = 2.61/0.85 = 3.07

Hence the answer is (a).


69:  

The probability of a bomb hitting a target is 1/5. Two bombs are enough to destroy a bridge. If six bombs are aimed at the bridge, find the probability that the bridge is destroyed

A.

0.79

B.

0.39

C.

0.16

D.

0.36

 
 

Option: B

Explanation :

‘P’ of hitting a bridge = 1/5

q= 1 - P

or     1 - 1/5 = 4/5

n = 6, r = 1

Hence the answer is (b).

 


70:  

Twenty-one students took a management course examination. The sample variance is found to be 80. The teacher claims that based on his past experience the true variance has been at least 100. Does the sample result show that the population variance significantly less than 100?

A.

The variability is not significant

B.

Significant with +1

C.

The variability is significant

D.

All of the above

 
 

Option: A

Explanation :

The value of X2 for 20 d.f. 5% level of significance 31.4. The variability is no significant.

Hence the answer is (c).
