In an Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) sponsored study, a random survey was done on 215 people owning petrol-driven small cars in Bangalore who had purchased their cars within the last one year. Details about the observed mileage were collected from the owners. Using the survey results, the mean was found to be 11.25 km/litre and the standard deviation was found to be 2.63 km/litre. The total number of petrol-driven small cars that were sold in Bangalore in the last one year is expected to be roughly 5500. Construct a 95% confidence interval for the average mileage of the above mentioned car population in Bangalore. Question 2: [4 marks]

Set A
1. Out of a population of 60 people, the standard error comes to 1.65kg when calculating their average weight using sampling with replacement and 1.61 when using sampling without replacement. What is the sample size and standard deviation of the population? (4)
N=60
With replacement, S.E. =
Without replacement, S.E. = = 1.61
Thus, FPC = (N-n)/(N-1) =
Thus, 60-n = 56.174
Thus, n = 3.8 or 4 approx.
