Question No: 22 ( Marks: 2 )
What do you know about discrete random variable?
Ans:
Such a numerical quantity whose value is determined by the value of a random experiment is called a random variable.
Example:
If we toss three dice together and let X represents the number of heads, then the random variable X consists of the value 0, 1, 2, and 3. the X in this example is a discrete random variable.
Question No: 23 ( Marks: 3 )
What is the subjective approach to the probability?
Ans:
Subjective probability is a measure of the strength of a person’s belief regarding the occurrence of an event A. Probability in this sense is purely subjective and is based on whatever evidence is available to the individual.
It has a disadvantage that 2 or more persons faced with the same evidence may arrive at different probabilities.
Example:
Suppose a panel of three judges is hearing a trial. It is possible that based on the evidence that is presented, two of them arrive at the conclusion that the accused is guilty while one of them decides that the evidence is not strong to draw this conclusion.
Question No: 24 ( Marks: 3 )
Explain the difference between absolute dispersion and relative dispersion:
Ans:
Question No: 25 ( Marks: 5 )
Differentiate between the mutually exclusive events and exhaustive events.
Mutually Exclusive Events
Two events A and B of a single experiment are said to be mutually exclusive if and only if they cant both occur at the same time.
Example:
When a die is rolled, the events ‘even number’ and odd number are mutually exclusive as we can get eithere an even number or an odd number in one throw, not both at the same time.
Exhaustive Events:
Events are said to be collectively exhaustive, when the union of mutually exclusive events is equal to the entire sample space S.
Examples
In the coin tossing experiment, head and tail are collectively exhaustive events.
Question No: 26 ( Marks: 5 )
