1. 1) Explain what do you think Statistics is all about?
- It is the process of collecting and analyzing numerical data in large quantities.
2) How can you apply Statistics in your decision making?
- When you look at the statistics it can help us to decide which option we want to choose.

2. 1) It is about analyzing numerical data to tell us about the "big picture" - whether there are more cars than motorcycles, whether there's more dust in the air during noon etc.
2) We can study statistics to decide the best option for us.
