**Attempts any TWO questions**

1

Distinguish between absolute and relative measure of dispersion. Two computer manufacturers A and B compete for profitable and prestigious contract. In their rivalry, each claim that their computer a consistent. For this it was decided to start execution of the same program simultaneously on 50 computers of each company and recorded the time as given below.

Time (in seconds) | 0-2 | 2-4 | 4-6 | 6-8 | 8-10 | 10-12 | |

Nature of computers manufactured by | A | 5 | 16 | 13 | 7 | 5 | 4 |

B | 2 | 7 | 12 | 19 | 9 | 1 |

Which company’s computer is more consistent?

In a certain type of metal test specimen. the effect of normal stress on a specimen is known to be functionally related to shear resistance. The following table gives the data on the two variables.

Normal stress | 26 | 25 | 28 | 23 | 27 | 23 | 24 | 28 | 26 |

Shear Stress | 22 | 27 | 24 | 27 | 23 | 25 | 26 | 22 | 21 |

- Identify which one is response variable, and fit a simple regression line, assuming that the relationship between them is linear.
- Interpret the regression coefficient with reference to your problem.
- Obtain the coefficient of determination, and interpret this.
- Based on the fitted model in (a), predict the shear resistance for normal stress of 30 kilogram per square centimeter .
