5 Black and 3 white balls . A box is chosen at random and a ball is
selected. If it is White find the probability that it is from

MODULE –IV
7. a) A sample of 400 items is taken from a population whose
Standard deviation is18 The mean of the sample is 82. Construct
95% confidence interval 6
b) Random samples of 600 men and 900 women in a locality were
asked whether they would like to have a bus stop near their
residence .350 men and 475 women were in favour of the proposal.
Test the significance between the difference of two proportions at
5% level 6
OR
8. a) Two independent random samples of sizes 100 and 120 have
means 50 and 60 with S.D. of 5 and 6.Construct 95% confidence
interval for the difference of two means 6
b) In two large populations there are 30% and 25% respectively of
fair haired people. Is this difference likely to be hidden in sample
of 1200 and 900 respectively for the two populations. Test at 5%
level 6
MODULE-V
9. Two random sample are drawn from two normal populations are as
Follows 12
Sample I 17 27 18 25 27 29 13 17
Sample II 16 16 20 27 26 25 21
Test whether two populations have been drawn from the same
normal population
OR
10. A survey of 400 families with 5 children each revealed the following
distribution. Is this result with the hypothesis that male births are
equally probable 12
