Solution

## (i) The highest rectangle corresponds to the highest number of literate females, which is in the interval 15$-$20 years. (ii) The class intervals are 10$-$15, 15$-$20, 20$-$25, 30$-$35, 35$-$40. Hence, the class width is 5. (iii) The lowest rectangle corresponds to the lowest frequency, which is 320. (iv) The class mark is the mid-point of the class interval. $classmark=\frac{upperlimit+lowerlimit}{2}$ Hence, the class mark of each class is as follows: Interval Class Mark 10$-$15 12.5 15$-$20 17.5 20$-$25 22.5 25$-$30 27.5 30$-$35 32.5 35$-$40 37.5 (v) The lowest rectangle corresponds to the least number of literate females, which is in the interval 10$-$15 years.
