1) Define Regression. Why are there two regression lines? Under what conditions can there be only one regression line? 2) Why sampling is necessary in statistical investigations? Explain the method of sampling. 3) Differentiate between primary data and secondary data. Examine critically the important method of collection of primary data. 4) Define statistics. Discuss its scope and limitations. 5) What is questionnaire? What precautions should be taken in drafting a good questionnaire?
