Note: 1. Question Paper consists of two parts (Part-A and Part-B) 2. Answer ALL the question in Part-A

3. Answer any FOUR Questions from Part-B

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PART ?A

c) Find the value of the finite population correction factor for 10 n= and

1000 N = . (2M)

d)Define null and alternative hypothesis. (3M)

e)Define simple correlation and write formula for simple correlation coefficient. (3M)

f)Write the expression for the control line and three sigma for mean Chart (2M)

PART -B

2. a) An experiment consists of four tosses of a coin. Denoting the outcomes HHTH,

THTT, ?.and assuming that all 16 outcomes are equally likely, find the

probability distribution for the total number of heads. (7M)

b) Define the geometric distribution and find its mean and variance. (7M)

?(i) Evaluate k (ii) Find (1 / 4 3 / 4). p X = = (iii) Find ( 2 / 3). p X > (7M)

b) Define the Gamma Distribution and find its mean and variance. (7M)

4. a) Take 30 slips of paper and label five each with 4 – and 4,four each with 3 – and

3,three each with 2 – and 2, and two each with 1 – ,0 and 1.If each slip of paper has

the same probability of being drawn , find the probability of getting

4, 3, 2, 1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 – – – – and find the mean and the variance of this

distribution. (7M)

b)Find the value of

12 15 and ? ? = = degrees of freedom. (7M)

5. a) A trucking firm is suspicious of the claim that the average lifetime of certain tires

is at least 28,000 miles. To check the claim, the firm puts 40 of these tires on its

trucks and gets a mean life time of 27, 463 miles with a standard deviation of 1,

348 miles. What can it conclude if the probability of a Type I error is to be at most

0.01? (7M)

b)Explain procedure for one-way classification of analysis of variance. (7M)

6. a) The following are the measurements of the air velocity and evaporation coefficient

of burning fuel droplets in an impulse engine:

Air
