**worldwide?**

**(iii) Try to find out, with the help of your teacher, any two factors which**

**play a major role in the cause in (ii) above being the major cause.**

**Solution**:

(i)

By representing causes on x-axis and family fatality rate on y-axis and choosing an appropriate scale (1 unit = 5% for y axis), the graph of the information given above can be constructed as follows.

All the rectangle bars are of same width and having equal spacing between them.

(ii)

Reproductive health condition is the major cause of women’s ill health and death worldwide as 31.8% of women are affected by it.

(iii)

The factors are as follows:

a. Lack of medical facilities

b. Lack of correct knowledge of treatment

**Question 2:**

**The following data on the number of girls (to the nearest ten) per thousand**

**boys in different sections of Indian society is given below.**

**(i) Represent the information above by a bar graph.**

**(ii) In the classroom discuss what conclusions can be arrived at from the**

**graph**

**Solution**:

(i)

By representing section (variable) on x-axis and number of girls per thousand boys on y-axis, the graph of the information given above can be constructed by choosing an appropriate scale

(1 unit = 100 girls for y-axis)

(ii)

It can be observed that the maximum number of girls per thousand boys (i.e., 970) is for ST and minimum number of girls per thousand boys (i.e., 910) is for urban. Also, the number of girls per thousand boys is greater in rural areas than in urban areas, backward districts than that in non-backward districts, SC and ST than in non SC/ST.

**Question 3:**

**Given below are the seats won by different political parties in the polling**

**outcome of a state assembly elections:**

**(i) Draw a bar graph to represent the polling results.**

**(ii) Which political party won the maximum number of seats?**

**Solution**:

(i)

We take polling results on x axis and seats won as y axis and choose an appropriate scale (1 unit =10 seats for y axis) so that we are able to draw the required graph of representing information as below.

(ii)

We may find that political party ‘A’ won maximum number of seats.

**Question 4:**

**The length of 40 leaves of a plant are measured correct to one millimetre,**

**and the obtained data is represented in the following table:**

**(i) Draw a histogram to represent the given data.**

**(ii) Is there any other suitable graphical representation for the same data?**

**(iii) Is it correct to conclude that the maximum number of leaves are 153**

**mm long? Why?**

**Solution**:

(i)

It can be observed that the length of leaves is represented in a discontinuous class interval having a difference of 1 in between them.

Hence, 0.5 has to be added to each upper class limit and also have to subtract 0.5 from the lower class limits so as to make the class intervals continuous.

Now taking length of leaves on x axis and number of leaves on y axis we can draw the histogram of this information as below:

(ii)

Other suitable graphical representation of this data could be frequency polygon.

(iii)

No, as maximum number of leaves (i.e. 12) has their length in between of 144.5 mm and 153.5 mm.

It is not necessary that all have their lengths as 153 mm.

**Question 5:**

**The following table gives the life times of 400 neon lamps:**

**(i) Represent the given information with the help of a histogram.**

**(ii) How many lamps have a life time of more than 700 hours?**

**Solution**:

(i)

By taking life time (in hours) of neon lamps on x-axis and the number of lamps on y-axis, the histogram of the given information can be drawn as follows.

(ii)

It can be concluded that the number of neon lamps having their lifetime more than 700 is the sum of the number of neon lamps having their lifetime as 700−800, 800−900, and 900−1000.

Hence, the number of neon lamps having their lifetime more than 700 hours is 184 (74 + 62 + 48 = 184).

**Question 6:**

**The following table gives the distribution of students of two sections**

**according to the mark obtained by them:**

**Represent the marks of the students of both the sections on the same graph ****by two frequency polygons. From the two polygons compare the**

**performance of the two sections.**

**Solution**:

We can find the class marks of the given class intervals by using the following formula Class mark = Upper class limit+Lower class limit/2

It can be observed that the performance of students of section ‘A’ is better than the students of section ‘B’ in terms of good marks.

**Question 7:**

**The runs scored by two teams A and B on the first 60 balls in a cricket**

**match are given below:**

**Represent the data of both the teams on the same graph by frequency**

**polygons. [Hint: First make the class intervals continuous.]**

**Solution**:

It can be observed that the class intervals of the given data are not continuous. There is a gap f 1 in between them.

Hence, 0.5 has to be added to the upper class limits and 0.5 has to be subtracted from the lower class limits. Also, class mark of each interval can be found by using the following formula

Class mark = Upper class limit+Lower class limit/2

Continuous data with class mark of each class interval can be represented as follows:

The frequency polygon for the above data can be constructed by

(i) Number of balls on x-axis

(ii) Runs scored on y-axis with an approximate scale of “1unit=1run” as the lowest run was at 1 and the highest was at 10.

**A random survey of the number of children of various age groups playing**

**in a park was found as follows:**

**Draw a histogram to represent the data above.**

**Solution**:

Here, it can be observed that the data has class intervals of varying width. The proportion of children per 1 year interval can be calculated as follows.

Will take the age of children on x-axis and proportion of children per 11 year interval per year on y-axis, the histogram can be:

**Question 9:**

**100 surnames were randomly picked up from a local telephone directory**

**and a frequency distribution of the number of letters in the English**

**alphabet in the surnames was found as follows:**

#### (**i) Draw a histogram to depict the given information.**

**(ii) Write the class interval in which the maximum number of surnames lie.**

**Solution**:

(i)

The proportion of number of surnames per 2 letter interval (class interval of min class size for reference) can be made.

(ii) The class interval in which the maximum number of surnames lies is 6−8 as it has 44 surnames in it i.e., the maximum for this data.
