Question

A test consists of 30 multiple choice questions, each with five possible answers, only one of which is correct.

Find the mean and the standard deviation of the number of correct answers.

Answer #1

Here we have given that test consist of n = 30 trials, and each having equal probability p =1/5.

since p is the probability of success to correctly attempted options as per given 5 option out of which one is correct.

Each question is nothing but Bernoulli trial with probability p =1/5.

therefore Sn = X1+X2+...+X30 follow the Binomial distribution with parameters(n=30,p=1/5).

therefore Mean of the distribution is np =30*1/5=6

similarly, standard deviation = square root of the variance = (n*p*q)^1/2

= (30*1/5*(1-5))^1/2

=2.19

so the mean and variance are 6 and 2.19 respectively.

A test consists of 10 multiple choice questions, each with five
possible answers, one of which is correct. To pass the test a
student must get 60% or better on the test. If a student randomly
guesses, what is the probability that the student will pass the
test? Please show work

A
quiz consists of 12 multiple-choice questions. Each question has 5
possible answers, only one of which is correct. Klein plans to
guess the answer to each question. Find the probability that Klein
gets exactly 7 correct answers. *

On
a multiple-choice test with nine questions, each question has for
possible answers, one of which is correct. For students who gets it
all answers, find the variance for the number of correct
answers.

A multiple-choice test consists of 27 questions with possible
answers of a, b, c, d, e, f. Estimate the probability that with
random guessing, the number of correct answers is at least 8.

For each question on a multiple-choice test, there are five
possible answers, of which exactly one is correct. If a student
selects answers at random, give the probability that the first
question answered correctly is question 4.

A multiple choice test consists of 23 questions with possible
answers of a,b,c,d. Estimate the probability that with random
guessing the number of correct answers is at least 11.

A multiple-choice test consists of 25 questions, each with four
possible answers. If our desperate business statistics student
answers the test by guessing the answers before reading the
questions (that is, by selecting an answer at random for each
question), use the normal curve approximation to find the
probabilities that he will get:
exactly six correct answers (b) at least seven correct
answers
fewer than four correct answers (d) more than two, but fewer
than nine correct answers
