Chapter 9  Mean, Median, Mode of Grouped Data, Cumulative Frequency Graph and Ogive MCQ
Correct option: (d)
Range is not a measure of central tendency.
Correct option: (a)
Mean cannot be determined graphically.
Correct option: (a)
Since mean is the average of all observations, it is influenced by extreme values.
Correct option: (c)
Mode can be obtained graphically from a histogram.
Correct option: (d)
Ogives are used to determine the median of a frequency distribution.
Correct option: (b)
The cumulative frequency table is useful in determining the median.
Correct option: (b)
Median is given by the abscissa of the point of intersection of the Less than Type and More than Type cumulative frequency curves.
Correct option: (c)
d_{i}'s are the deviations from A of midpoints of the classes.
Correct option: (b)
While computing the mean of the grouped data, we assume that the frequencies are centred at the class marks of the classes.
Correct option: (b)
Mode = (3 x median)  (2 x mean)
Correct option: (c)
Since the abscissa of the point of intersection of both the ogives gives the median, we have median = 20.5
Correct option: (c)
Class having maximum frequency is the modal class.
Here, maximum frequency = 30
Hence, the modal class is 30  40.
Correct option: (c)
Mean = 8.9
Median = 9
Mode = 3Median  2Mean
= 3 x 9  2 x 8.9
= 27  17.8
= 9.2
Correct option: (c)
For a symmetrical distribution, we have
Mean = mode = median
Correct option: (c)
Number of families having income more than Rs. 20000 = 50
Number of families having income more than Rs. 25000 = 37
Hence, number of families having income range 20000 to 25000 = 50  37 = 13
Correct option: (d)
Mean of 20 numbers = 0
Hence, sum of 20 numbers = 0 x 20 = 0
Now, the mean can be zero if
sum of 10 numbers is (S) and the sum of remaining 10 numbers is (S),
sum of 11 numbers is (S) and the sum of remaining 9 numbers is (S),
…….
sum of 19 numbers is (S) and the 20^{th} number is (S), then their sum is zero.
So, at the most, 19 numbers can be greater than zero.
(a)  (s)
The most frequent value in a data is known as mode.
(b)  (r)
Mean cannot be determined graphically.
(c)  (q)
An ogive is used to determine median.
(d)  (p)
Standard deviation is not a measure of central tendency.

At y = 50, affix A.
Through A, draw a horizontal line meeting the curve at P.
Through P, a vertical line is drawn which meets OX at M.

Here, maximum frequency = 27
Hence, the modal class is 40  50.
Thus, the lower limit of the modal class is 40.
