## Class 10 Maths MCQs for Statistics

1. If x1, x2, x3,….., xn are the observations of a given data. Then the mean of the observations will be:

(a)Sum of observations/Total number of observations

(b)Total number of observations/Sum of observations

(c)Sum of observations+Total number of observations

(d)None of the above

Explanation: The mean or average of observations will be equal to the ratio of sum of observations and total number of observations.

xmean=x1+x2+x3+…..+xn/n

2. If the mean of frequency distribution is 7.5 and ∑fi xi = 120 + 3k, ∑fi = 30, then k is equal to:

(a)40

(b)35

(c)50

(d)45

Explanation: As per the given question,

Xmean = ∑fi xi /∑fi

7.5 = (120+3k)/30

225 = 120+3k

3k = 225-120

3k= 105

k=35

3. The mode and mean is given by 7 and 8, respectively. Then the median is:

(a)1/13

(b)13/3

(c)23/3

(d)33

Explanation: Using Empirical formula,

Mode = 3Median – 2 Mean

3Median = Mode+2Mean

Median = (Mode+2Mean)/3

Median = (7+2(8))/3 = (7+16)/3 = 23/3

4. The mean of the data: 4, 10, 5, 9, 12 is;

(a)8

(b)10

(c)9

(d)15

Explanation: mean = (4+10+5+9+12)/5 = 40/5 = 8

5. The median of the data 13, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20 is:

(a)30/2

(b)31/2

(c)33/2

(d)35/2

Explanation: For the given data, there are two middle terms, 16 and 17.

Hence, median = (16+17)/2 = 33/2

6. If the mean of first n natural numbers is 3n/5, then the value of n is:

(a)3

(b)4

(c)5

(d)6

Explanation: Sum of natural numbers = n(n+1)/2

Given, mean = 3n/5

Mean = sum of natural numbers/n

3n/5 = n(n+1)/2n

3n/5 = (n+1)/2

6n = 5n+5

n=5

7. If AM of a, a+3, a+6, a+9 and a+12 is 10, then a is equal to;

(a)1

(b)2

(c)3

(d)4

Explanation: Mean of AM = 10

(a+a+3+a+6+a+9+a+12)/5 = 10

5a+ 30 = 50

5a=20

a=4

8. The class interval of a given observation is 10 to 15, then the classmark for this interval will be:

(a)11.5

(b)12.5

(c)12

(d)14

Explanation: Class mark = (Upper limit + Lower limit)/2

= (15+10)/2

= 25/2

= 12.5

9. If the sum of frequencies is 24, then the value of x in the observation: x, 5,6,1,2, will be;

(a)4

(b)6

(c)8

(d)10

Explanation:

Given,

∑fi = 24

∑fi = x+5+6+1+2=14+x

24 = 14+x

x=24-14 = 10

10. The mean of following distribution is:

 xi 11 14 17 20 fi 3 6 8 7

(a)15.6

(b)17

(c)14.8

(d)16.4
