    A. 45 kg
    Explanation

    Correct Answer
    B. $ 180
    Explanation
    To find the answer, we need to increase $150 by 20%. To calculate the increase, we multiply $150 by 20% (or 0.20). 20% of $150 is $30. Adding this to the original amount, we get $180. Therefore, the correct answer is $180.

    3) Find the percentage decrease when 80 kg reduce to 72 kg .

    • A.

      0.1 %

    • B.

      10 %

    • C.

      11.1 %

    Correct Answer
    B. 10 %
    Explanation
    The percentage decrease can be calculated by finding the difference between the initial value and the final value, dividing it by the initial value, and then multiplying by 100. In this case, the initial value is 80 kg and the final value is 72 kg. The difference is 80 kg - 72 kg = 8 kg. Dividing 8 kg by 80 kg gives 0.1, and multiplying by 100 gives 10%. Therefore, the percentage decrease is 10%.

    Correct Answer
    C. 75 QR
    Explanation
    After applying a discount of 25% to the original price of 100 QR, the discounted price can be calculated by multiplying the original price by (100% - 25%) = 75%. Therefore, the price after the discount is 75 QR.

    Correct Answer
    C. Sample consist of 25 people
    Explanation
    The sample consisting of 25 people is considered a small sample because it has the smallest number of people compared to the other samples provided (35 and 30 people). In statistical terms, a small sample size refers to a subset of a population that is not representative enough to draw accurate conclusions or make generalizations about the entire population.

    • B.

      19

    • C.

      6

    Correct Answer
    B. 19
    Explanation
    The question asks for the number of cars sold in one week by a large store. The chart provided does not directly indicate the number of cars sold, but instead shows the color of cars sold. Therefore, there is no clear way to determine the exact number of cars sold based on the given information. Hence, the correct answer cannot be determined.

    7) Two of the following is a type of a quantitive discrete data .

    • A.

      Number of your brother.

    • B.

      Your favorite color.

    • C.

      Number of students in your class.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Number of your brother.
    C. Number of students in your class.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Number of your brother" and "Number of students in your class". These two options represent quantitative discrete data because they involve counting and measuring distinct, separate entities. The number of brothers a person has and the number of students in a class are both numerical values that can only take on specific whole numbers, making them examples of discrete data. On the other hand, "Your favorite color" is not a quantitative data type as it is a subjective preference and cannot be measured or counted in the same way.

The bars represent different time intervals, and the heights of the bars represent the number of teens who spend that amount of time. The question asks how many teens spend between 21-40 minutes. Looking at the histogram, we can see that there are 11 teens represented in the bar for that time interval.
