A. The statement is true. Any correctly constructed frequency distribution is valid. However, some choices for the categories or classes give more information about the shape of the distribution.

Explanation:

A frequency distribution is a table containing a summary of the data obtained from a sample. The distribution is organized in table format, and each table entry contains the frequency of the data within a given range, or in a group.

When the data set consists of a large number of data, it is indicated to allocate them in a frequency distribution table or frequency table. The data in this table is divided into pre-established classes, noting the frequency of each class. So a frequency table is a tabular arrangement of the data with the corresponding frequency. Frequency tables are the basis for graphing, so we can conclude that any correctly constructed frequency distribution is valid. However, some options for categories or classes provide more information about the format of the distribution.

A. The statement is true. Any correctly constructed frequency distribution is valid. However, some choices for the categories or classes give more information about the shape of the distribution.

C) The frequency of heterozygotes is given by (p + q)/N, where N is the number of individuals in the population.

The statement which not supported by the relative frequency table is " The reason given the least number of times was did not finish assignment " ⇒ C

Step-by-step explanation:

A relative frequency table shows the mode of a certain type of data based on the population sampled

To find the relative frequency, divide the frequency by the total number of data values

The table:

→ Reason : Relative Frequency

→ Illness : 0.57

→ Overslept : 0.20

→ College visit : 0.16

→ Did not finish assignment : 0.07

Lets check each statement

A. More than half the students were absent because of illness

From the table illness is 0.57 which equals to 57% of the students, so more than 50% (half) of the students were absent because of illness

The answer supported by the table

B. More than one-third of the students were absent because of oversleeping or college visits

From the table overslept is 0.20 and collage visit is 0.16, or means add the two numbers, so 0.20 + 0.16 = 0.36 which equals to 36% and one-third of the students means 33%, so more than one-third of the students were absent because of oversleeping or college visits

The answer supported by the table

C. The reason given the least number of times was did not finish assignment

There is no any reason on the table for the least number of times was did not finish assignment

The answer NOT supported by the table

D. Only 7 students were absent because they did not finish an assignment.

From the table 0.07 Did not finish assignment, that means if the total number of students is 100, than 7 students only did not finish an assignment

The answer supported by the table

E. Less than one-fourth of the students were absent because they overslept

One-fourth means 0.25, and from the table 0.20 over slept, so less than 0.25 of the students were absent because of Overslept

The answer supported by the table
