 In reply to this post by sakshi q3 should be 20   x  1      2    3    4    5    6 px  1/6 1/6 1/6 1/6 1/6 1/6 even number >2 is 4 and 6 .its prob.is 2/6 odd number "<4 is 1 and 3 its prob is 2/6 prob. of a or b is 4/6 4/6 * 30 = 20 and for q6 i think it should be 0 bcoz for none of the case i m getting a  having 0 at odd place..

 In reply to this post by sakshi Q3 & Q6: ditto to what sakshi said. Q7: 2 conditions are given: (1) each couple have at-most 2 children (2) each couple stops having children once they have a son. meaning, the following sequence of children are possible. S, DS, DD (I have included daughter-daughter also because i am assuming as soon as either of the 2 conditions are met couples stop conceiving) So the expected proportion of female is 3/5(I am not having a nice feeling with the above solution). which years questions are these by the way? ---  "You don't have to believe in God, but you should believe in The Book." -Paul ErdÅ‘s

 In reply to this post by sakshi gdp growth is 7% and population growth is 2 % den approximate gdp per capita growth is 5% (7-2) also given dat 1% income increase is associated vd .4% increase in food demand so 5% increase in income increases demand for food by 5*.4%=2%. this means dat demand curve for food shifts rightward by 2% so supply must also shift rightward by 2% to keep prices constant.

 In reply to this post by sakshi sol B10 (2008) given dat in strata A 25% of people =5 so total in strata A= 20 nad 10% of people in strata B is 6, total in strata B is 60 total income of strata A is (2+1+3+4+5)*1000*4=60000 total income in strata B is (5+1+2+3+4+1)*100*10=16000 average =76000/80=950 (here the assumption is that sample mean = population mean) Akshay Jain Masters in Economics Delhi School of Economics 2013-15

 In reply to this post by sakshi sol 5 in period 1 1000 L is uemployed so total employed is 9000 the production function is of the form perfect complements so the economy operats at a point where 4k=6l given l=9000, 4k=54000,k=13500 15% of output=15% of 54000 is saved and reinvested so next period investment is 8100. labour force groth rate is 10% so change in labour force in period 2 is 1000. total l=11000 total k in period 2=13500+8100=21600. put these values in production function we get y=min(86400,66000) =66000. so in period 2 der is full employment.

## Re: jnu doubts

 In reply to this post by Sinistral I dont think its 3/5. It should be 1/2 instead. Here, DS cant be possible as even if they have say 1st daughter, they immediately have a son after that. So it ends reproduction. And of course, if they already have a son, it makes no difference. So i should have total possible 8 children in the 1st period: 1D, 2D, 1D1S, 2S, 1S = 8 children (i) Out of there, 4 are D's and thus probability is 4/8 In period 2, for 2D and 1D, reproduction happens again and for each node, the same previous (i) is repeated. Thus there are 16 cases now and 8 D's. So 8/16 This keeps happening and probability for each repeated periods is 1/2 (Just a guess. Correct me if i am wrong :) )
