Case study

Arithmetic mean has become the most widely used measure of central tendency of data. Arithmetic mean, which has maximum merits and least demerits, is the most meritorious measure of central tendency of data among all other existing measures for the same. One demerit of arithmetic mean is that it is affected by the extreme value (of observed data). After mean, the most used method is median and the least used method is mode due to the complexity in its calculation. Observe the figure given below and answer the questions.

Case Based

A study of demand and supply of quality of televisions in 13 European countries utilise data on exports and imports of various types of television sets. Large-screen TVs have a higher unit value, on average, but there is a large dispersion of unit values across source countries and destinations. Richer countries tend to export large-screen TVs at a lower price relative to small-screen TVs, potentially because they have a comparative advantage in producing in quality. It was found that there is a downward sloping demand for quality, with countries facing a larger quality premium buying fewer large-screen TVs. This suggests that there is no simple quality-quantity trade-off (unlike in many recent trade models), and the demand for quality should be modelled separately.

Question. Export price of large television screen is low due to ……… .
(a) competitiveness
(b) efficiency
(c) productive
(d) low demand

B

Question. The large screen TVs have a higher unit due to which of the following reasons?
(a) High income of the consumers
(b) Preferences of the consumer
(c) Both (a) and (b)
(d) Neither (a) nor (b)

C

Question. When people are ignorant about the price changes of a good, its demand is said to be
(a) price elastic
(b) price inelastic
(c) price unit elastic
(d) None of these

B

Question. Assertion (A) The demand curve for televisions is downward sloping and steeper.
Reason (R) When the demand is less responsive to change in price, its elasticity becomes inelastic.
Alternatives
(a) Both Assertion (A) and Reason (R) are true and Reason (R) is the correct explanation of Assertion (A)
(b) Both Assertion (A) and Reason (R) are true, but Reason (R) is not the correct explanation of Assertion (A)
(c) Assertion (A) is false, but Reason (R) is true
(d) Both are false

A

Question. The price elasticity of demand of large-screen televisions will be highly elastic. Choose from the options below. B

Statistics is all about data. Presenting data effectively and efficiently is an art. The collected data in the first instance might have many complexities. This is where the importance of presentation of data comes in. Presentation is a way to simplify the data to enhance human understanding. With time, new and complex research started happening, people realised the importance of the presentation of data to make sense of the findings. Broadly, the raw data can be classified using three modes namely textual, tabular and diagrammatic. Each method is used for different purposes with its own merits and demerits.

Question. ……… uses small identical figures or objects for comparison of various data.
(a) Pictographs
(b) Diagrams
(c) Graphs
(d) All of these
