Question 45


Appeared in Year: 2010

Describe in Detail


Show that for any discrete distribution, standard deviation is not less than mean deviation from mean.


Here, we show that standard deviation is greater than mean deviation from mean.

S. D. ⩾ mean deviation from mean

(S. D.) 2 ⩾ (mean deviation from mean) 2

Let x1 , x2 , … , xn are n observations in a set have frequency f1 , f2, … , fn and the mean of observation is , then


Which is essentially true as f1 , f2 , … are not negative. The equality ho…

Question 46


Appeared in Year: 2014

Describe in Detail


Consider two samples as follows:

Sample 1: 1, 4, 7, 9, 16, 17,22, 24

Sample 2: 2, 6, 10, 12, 18, 20, 26,28, 32

Test whether the examples have come from the same population by Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney test. [Given value of Z for α = 0·05 = 1·645, where Z is N (0,1) ]


Let the sample 1 consider the population X and sample 2 consider the population Y. The hypothesis whether two sample comes from same identical population. We test the following null and alternative hypothesis is

In Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney test, first consider the combined ordered sequence of the sample values is

Sample: 1 2 4 6 7 9 10 12 16 17 18 20 22…

Describe in Detail


Scores in a UPSC examination in Statistics Paper-I and Paper-II awarded to 10 candidates were as under:

Calculate Spearman՚S Rank Correlation Coefficient between the Scores in the Two Papers
Score in Paper- I91658012080140105804272
Score in



Calculate Spearman՚s rank correlation coefficient between the scores in the two papers.


The method of calculating the association between the ranks is known as Spearman՚s rank correlation. The candidates are rank by the UPSC examination taken for two papers which is independent. The Spearman՚s rank correlation is

where n is the number of candidates and di is the difference between the rank of the i th individual.

For this, we give the r…
