QID : 411 Suppose a person would earn Rs. 10,000 in base period. Suppose the cost of living index increases by 20over base period. Then the employers of that
person increase his salary by Rs. 1500. Which of the following option is TRUE?

Correct Answer: He should claim Rs 500/ as Dearness Allowance.
QID : 412 The correlation coefficient between two variables X and Y is 0.4. The correlation coefficient between 2X and (Y) will be :
Correct Answer: 0.4
QID : 413 Trace out the WRONG option from the following: (CLI= Cost of living index numbers)
1) If group indices increase k times, so also CLI does.
2) CLI remains unchanged if all the group indices increase by a constant amount.
3) CLI helps determining Purchasing Power of Money.
4) Dearness Allowance is fixed by considering CLI.
Correct Answer: CLI remains unchanged if all the group indices increase by a constant amount.
