 True
 False
 The difference between the midpoints of two consecutive classes is equal to the number of classes.
 True
 False
 The line segments in a cumulative frequency polygon can be either increasing or decreasing depending on the given data.
 True
 False
 The variance is considered the most accurate measure of dispersion for distribution comparison because it is calculated using the squared values.
 True
 False
 In a group of 70 scores, if the largest score is increased by 20 points the mean of the scores will increase by 3.5 points.
 True
 False

 Ordinal level of data
 Ratio level of data
 Interval level of data
 As part of a test preparation course, students are asked to take a practice version of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). This is a standardized test, and scores can range from 200 to 800. The appropriate scale of measurement is:
 Nominal
 Ordinal
 Interval
 Ratio
 Children in elementary school are evaluated and classified as nonreaders (0), beginning readers (1), grade level readers (2), or advanced readers (3). The classification is done to place them in reading groups.

Problem 3 (25%)
A sample of 20 women were asked about the symptoms they felt after taking the COVID19 vaccine. Below are their responses:
Headaches  Stroke  Fever  Nausea  Tiredness  Nausea 
Headaches  Tiredness  Cough  Fever  Tiredness  Cough 
Skin Rash  Tiredness  Cough  Fever  Nausea  Tiredness 
Cough  Headaches 
 The “Symptoms” is a variable, thus it should be organized into a
.
 Qualitative, frequency distribution
 Qualitative, frequency table
 Quantitative, frequency distribution
 Quantitative, frequency table
 Based on the above data, the relative frequency of “tiredness” is:
 4
 5
 2
 25
 If two more women were added to the survey and if they both had a stroke after taking the vaccine, the relative frequency of this symptom would be:
 1
 15
 136
 09
 Based on the above data, the angle that corresponds to the “Fever” category is:
 15
 54
 8
 58
 The best graphical presentation for this data is:
 Bar Graph
 Histogram
 Frequency polygon
 Cumulative histogram or cumulative frequency polygon
Problem 4 (25%)

113 189 186 174 103 125 41 81 47 156 37 89
90 141 126 28 58 172 75 61
 What interval for each class do you suggest?
 5
 30
 33

 The first point of a cumulative frequency polygon that represents this data is:
 X = 61 and Y = 5
 X = 28 and Y = 5
 X = 28 and Y = 0
 X = 5 and Y = 0
