In questions 1 to 5, out of the four options, only one is correct. write the correct answer.

1. Using tally marks, which one of the following represents the number eight:

NCERT Exemplar Class 6 Maths Solutions Chapter 5 Data Handling Image 1

Solution:-

NCERT Exemplar Class 6 Maths Solutions Chapter 5 Data Handling Image 2

NCERT Exemplar Class 6 Maths Solutions Chapter 5 Data Handling Image 3represents number 5

NCERT Exemplar Class 6 Maths Solutions Chapter 5 Data Handling Image 4represents number 3

So, 5 + 3 = 8

The data can be arranged in a tabular form using tally marks.

2. The marks (out of 10) obtained by 28 students in a Mathematics test are listed as below:

8, 1, 2, 6, 5, 5, 5, 0, 1, 9, 7, 8, 0, 5, 8, 3, 0, 8, 10, 10, 3, 4, 8, 7, 8, 9, 2, 0

The number of students who obtained marks more than or equal to 5 is

(A) 13 (B) 15 (C) 16 (D) 17

Solution:-

(D) 17

First we have to arrange the marks (out of 10) obtained by 28 students in a Mathematics test.

0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 9, 9, 10, 10.

The number of students who obtained marks more than or equal to 5 is 17.

3. In question 2 above, the number of students who scored marks less than 4 is

(A) 15 (B) 13 (C) 12 (D) 10

Solution:-

(D) 10

First we have to arrange the marks (out of 10) obtained by 28 students in a Mathematics test.

0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 9, 9, 10, 10.

The number of students who scored marks less than 4 is 10.

B, G, M, B, A, O, M, O, G, B, O, M, G, A, A, B,

M, O, M, G, B, A, M, O, M, O,

where A, B, G, M and O stand for the fruits Apple, Banana, Grapes, Mango and Orange respectively. Which two fruits are liked by an equal number of students?

(A) A and M (B) M and B

(C) B and O (D) B and G

Solution:-

(D) B and G

From the question it is given that A, B, G, M and O stand for the fruits Apple, Banana, Grapes, Mango and Orange respectively.

So, by observing the choices of the fruits of 42 students in a class Banana (B) and Grapes(G) are liked by an equal number of students i.e. 8 students each.

5. According to data of question 4, which fruit is liked by most of the students?

(A) O (B) G (C) M (D) A

Solution:-

Solution:-

NCERT Exemplar Class 6 Maths Solutions Chapter 5 Data Handling Image 10

From the question it is given that, one symbol represents 20 flowers.

Then, 3 symbol represents = 3 × 20

= 60

21. On the scale of 1-unit length = 10 crore, the bar of length 6 units will represent ________ crore and of units will represent 75 crore.

Solution:-

From the question it is given that, 1 – unit length = 10 crore,

So, bar of length 6 unit = 6 × 10

= 60 crore

Then, number of units will represent 75 crore = 75/10

= 7.5 units

On the scale of 1-unit length = 10 crore, the bar of length 6 units will represent 60 crore and of 7.5 units will represent 75 crore.
