(b) A public interest group was planning to make a court challenge to auto insurance
rates in one of the three cities: A, B, or C. The prob. that it would select A was
0.40, B-0.35, and C is O.25. The group knows that it had a 45% chance of a
favorable ruling if it chose A, 60% if it chooses B and 35% if it chose C. If the
group did receive favourable ruling, what is the probability that they choose (i) city
A, (ii) City B (iii) City C.

(b) A brand manager is concerned that her brand?s share may be unevenly distributed
throughout the country. In a survey in which the country was divided into four
geographic regions, a random sampling of 100 consumers in each region was
surveyed , with the following results:

NE NW SE SW
Purchase the
brand
40 55 45 50
Do not
purchase
60 45 55 50

the four regions. Use significance level of 0.05

last several years, the average completion of training program is 44 days with a
standard deviation of 12 days.

(b) Two research laboratories have independently produced drugs that provide relief to
arthritis patients. The first drug was tested on a group of 90 arthritis patients and
produced an average of 8.5 hours of relief and a standard deviation of 1.8 hour. The
second drug was tested on 80 patients producing an average of 7.9 hours and a standard
deviation of 2.1 hours. At the 0.05 level of significance, does the second drug provide a
significantly shorter period of relief?

Q.4 (a) Explain in detail graphical representation of data. 7

(b) A television documentary on overeating claimed that Indians are about 10 kgs
overweight on average. To test this claim, 18 randomly selected individuals were
examined, their average excess weight was found to be 12.4 kgs and the sample
standard deviation was 2.7 kgs. At significance level of 0.01, test the whether the
average excess weight is different from the claim.
