### Q.5. State with reasons whether you agree or disagree with the following statements

**1) Partition values have application only in theory but not in practice.**

**Answer: **No, I disagree with this statement.**Reasons:** a) Partition values like quartiles, deciles, and percentiles divide the given set of observations into an equal number of parts. So they have applications in theory.

b) Quartiles are used in the study of all types of financial information concerning economic data, income data, stock data, etc.

c) Government uses deciles to study the level of economic inequality, measurement of poverty line, drought conditions, etc.

d) Percentiles are used in the measurement of test scores, health indicators, household income, household wealth, and percentile wages.

Thus, partition values have applications in theory as well as in practice.

**2) Average can misinterpret the representative value.**

**Answer: **Yes, I agree with this statement.**Reasons:** a) The arithmetic mean, mode and median are the types of averages that have certain limitations.

b) The data consists of extreme values on the lower side and also on the higher side in magnitude. Such values are known as ‘outliers’.

c) The average used for such data often misinterprets its representative value.

d) To overcome this misinterpretation, generally, partition values like median, quartiles, deciles, and percentiles are used.

Thus, the average can misinterpret the representative value.

**3) Median is also known as second quartile.**

**Answer: **Yes, I agree with this statement.**Reasons:** a) Median divide the whole set of observations into two equal parts.

b) Quartiles divide the whole set of observations into four equal parts.

c) Therefore, the value of the median is equal to the second quartile.

Thus, the median is also known as the second quartile.
