Question 26.
Explain briefly the steps in the construction of a consumer price index number.
The following are main steps in the construction of consumer price index number.

1. Object and scope.
2. Conducting family budget survey.
3. Obtaining price quotations.
4. Method of construction.

(a) Object and Scope: Decide the class of consumers for Which Index number is required to construct. As whether Index number is meant for government employees, merchants, farmers, etc., Also, the geographical location, as that of locality, city or town, or a community of people who are having the similar consumption pattern.

(b) Conducting family budget survey: A sample survey regarding the. average expenses of families on various items of consumption is conducted. In the survey, the information regarding commodities consumed by the families, the quality and the respective budget is collected. The items included are under the heads of (i) Food, (ii) Clothing (iii) Fuel and Lighting and (iv) Miscellaneous.
Each of these can be divided into smaller groups as food may be included wheat, rice, dhal, etc.,

(c) Obtaining price quotations: While constructing the cost of living Index number, retail prices of commodities are to be collected. The price lists are obtained from different agencies from different places, then they are averaged and these average prices are used in the construction of Index Number. Here price list of current period and base period should be collected.

(d) Methods of construction: There are two methods of construciton of consumer price Index Number  Question 27.
What are simple and weighted Index Numbers?
Value I.NO. V01 = $$\frac{\Sigma p_{1} q_{1}}{\Sigma p_{0} q_{0}}$$ × 100$$\frac{1000}{800}$$ × 1000 = 125
In Simple (unweighted) price Index numbers, an average of price relatives are calculated using Arithmetic mean and Geometric mean. In Weighted price Index numbers appropriate weights are assigned to various items, and weighted average of price relatives are calculated using Arithmetic mean ad Geometric mean. And Similarly, Simple and Weighted aggregative Index numbers are computed.

Question 28.
Explain the components of ‘time series’.
The main components of time series are:
(a) Secular trend.
(b) Seasonal trend.
(c) Cyclical variations.
(d) Irregular/Random variations.
(а) Secular Trend: The term secular trend refer to the tendency of the variable to increase or decrease or remain steady over a period of time. Eg., the values of population, prices, sales, literacy, etc., are all increasing. As against the death rate, illiteracy, travel by bullock carts are decreasing. The rise or fall may be steep or gradual. But they show increasing trend, if we observe over a sufficiently long period of time (t > lyear).

(b) Seasonal Trend: The term seasonal variations basically refer to the seasons of the year- caused annually by the seasons of the year. But also includes the variations of any kind which are periodic in nature whose period is shorter than one year (t < 1 year). There are two important factors, which are responsible for seasonal variations, namely

(i) Climatic and wheather conditions
(ii) Customs, habits and traditions of the people.

For eg.,

1. Sales of cool drinks, ice creams, are more in the summer season.
2. Sales of stationery will be more in June-July.
3. The business commercial bank may reach a peak around the first week of every month.

(c) Cyclical variations: Cyclical variations are fluctuations spread over a period of n.ore than one year. Most of the time series relating to economics and business show same kind of cyclical variations.
Hence cyclical variation is an oscillatory variation which occurs in four stages. Such as a) prosperity b) decline c) depression and d) Improvement. In prosperity the curve increases the depression business is in boom. After reaching the peak of activities the business declines the curve slopes down and is called period of decline. In depression the business activities are at the lowest. Then follows a period of nprovement and again reaches the properity. The interval of time from one prosperity to the other is called the period of cycle, (t > 1year)

(d) Irregular or Random variations: Irregular variations are those changes of time series, which are irregular in nature and donot show any pattern. The cause of irregular variations are due to accidental happenings such as wars, floods, earthquakes, famine, fire, strikes, etc., These factors being unpredictable. Generally such variations last for short period.

Question 29.

In a city 40% are vegetarians. In a random sample of 6 persons, find the probability that (i) 3 are vegetarians (ii) at least one is a vegetarian.
Given : p = 40% = 0.4 q = 1 – p = 70.6 6n = 6
Let ‘x’ be the number of vegetarians is a Binomial variate with the parameters n = 6 p = 0.4 and q = 0.6, then,
The p.m.f. is –
p(x) = ncxpxqn – x; x = 0,1,2, …… n
= 6Cx (0.4)x (0.6)6 – 3; x = 0,1,2 ………… 6
(i) p(3 are vegetarians)
= p(x = 3) = 6C3 (0.4)3 (0.6)6-3 = 20 x 0.064 x 0.216 = 0.2765
(ii) p(atleast one is a vegetarian)
= p(x ≥ 1)= 1 – p(x < 1) = 1 – p(x = 0)
= 1 – 6C0 (0.4)0 (0.6)6-0 = 1 – 1 x 1 x 0.046 = 0,9554 Question 31.
The I.Q. of individuals in a population follows N.D. with mean 95 and SD 10. Find the probability of an individual having I.Q. a) less than 88, b) Between 88 and 108.
Given µ = 95, σ = 10, .
Let x be the l.Q of individual is a Normal variate with the parameters µ – 95 and S.D= σ = 10. then S.NV. (i) p(IQ less than 88)
= p(x < 88)  p(z < – 0.7)
= Area from O to (-∞) — Area from O to (- 0.7)
= 0.5 – 0.2580
p(x < 88) = 0.2420

(ii) p(IQ between 88 and 108)
p (88 < x < 108) p(-0.7 < z < 1.3)
= Area from O to (-0.7)
= Area from O to 1.3 = 0.2580 + 0.4032
p(88 < x < 108) = 0.6612 Question 32.

Question 35.
An engineering company has a machine whose purchase price is Rs. 80,000. The expected resale value and expected maintenance cost in different years are as given below : Determine the optimal age of replacement of the machine.
Here p = Rs. 80,000. Let Ci and Sn be the maintenance cost and resale value.
Then total annual cost: T = (p – Sn) + ΣCi
Annual average cost [A(n)] = $$\frac{\mathrm{T}}{\mathrm{n}}$$ Here, Annual average cost A(n) is minimum for n = 3 years. Therefore the optimal age of replacement of the machine is n = 3 years.
Minimum average cost A(n) = A(3) = Rs. 4600.

Question 38.
(a) In a randomly selected corporation school, out of 80 students, 35 students passed S.S.L.C. examination with a first class. At 0.05 level of significance can we conclude that on an average 50% of the students in corporation school secured first class.
Given: n=80; x=35
∴ p = \frac{x}{n}=\frac{35}{80} = 0.4375
p0 = 0.5 ∴ Q0 = 1 – P0 = 0.5. α = 5%
H0: proportion of first class secured students is 50% (0.5)
(i.e., H0 : p0 = 0.5)
H1 : proportion of first class secured students differ from 50% (0.5)
(i.e., H1 : p0 ≠ 0.5) {Two Tailed test)
The test statistics is – At α = 5% the two Tail critical values are -k1 = -1.96 and k2 = 1.96
Here zcal is in between -k1, and k2/zcal is in acceptance region.
∴ H0 is accepted.

V. Answer any TWO of the following questions.

Question 41.
A car hire agency has two cars. On an average there is a demand for one car during a particular hour. What is the probability that (i) both cars are free (ii) some demand is refused.
Let X denote the number of cars hired / demond is a poisson variate with the parameter λ = 1. Then the p.m.f is – (i) P(both cars are free)
= P (No cars are bired)
= p(x = 0) = $$\frac{\mathrm{e}^{-1} 1^{0}}{0 !}$$ = e-1 = 0.3679
(ii) P (Some demand is refused)
= P(x > 2) = 1 – P (x ≤ 2)
[P(x = 0)+ P(x = l) + P(x = 2)] 1 – 0.3679 x 2.5
