i) Given that, for any two events A and B, P [A U B] = 0.6 and P
[A U ] = 0.8. Find P [A]
ii) In a certain large population, 2% of people have 6 fingers.
A random sample of 400 people is chosen from this population. Calculate
approximate value for the probability that 8 or more number of people in the
sample have 6 fingers.
iii) Simulate three observations from exponential distribution
with mean 5 using the following three random numbers from U(0,1) 0.0923, 0.8657
and 0.3494 (3)

students are given below:

A company sells a particular brand of a mobile at Rs. 10,000 per
piece. It guarantees refund as follows. Full cost of the mobile will be refunded
to the buyer if it fails during the first year, half the cost if it fails after
one year but before two years, and no refund if it fails after two years. The
life time of the mobile follows exponential distribution with mean two years,
i) Find the probabilities of the mobile failing in first year,
in second year and after two years. (3)
ii) If the company sells 500 mobiles, calculate expected amount of refund by the
A laptop retailer procures 40%, 30%, 20% and 10% of laptops from
four manufacturers A, B, C and D respectively. It is known that 15%, 10% 5% and
3% of laptops received from the respective manufacturers are faulty. A laptop is
randomly chosen from the retailer and is found to be defective.
Find the probability that it is manufactured by B?
A general insurance company has designed a one year motor
insurance policy in such a way that if a policyholder claims for the first time,
he will get Rs. 5000 and for the subsequent claims he will get Rs. 2500 each.
Obviously, the policyholder will not get any amount if he has not filed any
claim during a policy year.
An actuary has made an assumption that for all integers n ≥ 0,
where represents the probability that the policyholder files n claims during the
i) Find the distribution of the number of claims arising on the
motor insurance policy.
ii) Find expected value and standard deviation of the claim amount for each
