(d) time – continuous
(e) daily temperature – continuous
(f) intelligence quotient – continuous
(g) number of goals scored in a hockey-match – discrete
(h) height – continuous

The class marks of a distribution are 2.03, 2.23, 2.43, 2.63, 2.83, 3.03 and 3.23 Determine the class size and the class boundaries.
Solution:
The class marks are 2.03, 2.23, 2.43, 2.63, 2.83, 3.03 and 3.23
Then class size = difference of two consecutive class marks
= 2.23 – 2.03 = 0.20
∴ Class boundries will be
2.03 – $$\frac { 0.20 }{ 2 }$$ = 2.03 – 0.10 = 1.93
and 2.03 + $$\frac { 0.20 }{ 2 }$$ = 2.03 + 0.10 = 2.13
∴ 1.93 – 2.13
Similarly other boundries will be
2.13 – 2.33, 2.33 – 2.53, 2.53 – 2.73,
2.73 – 2.93, 2.93 – 3.13 and 2.13 – 2.33
