Hypothesis: There is no positive correlation difference between divergent production ability and socio economic status of 9th standard boys of rural private school. See Table 4 The obtained r-value is less than the table r-value, so divergent production ability and socio economic status are insignificantly correlated at the 0.05 level of significance. Hence the framed null hypothesis is accepted in favour of alternative hypothesis. There is no positive correlations between divergent productions ability and socio economic status of 9th standard boys of rural private school. Hypothesis: There is no positive correlation difference between divergent production ability and socio economic status of 9th standard girls of rural private school. See Table 5 The obtained r-value is less than the table r-value, so divergent production ability and socio economic sta-

tus are insignificantly correlated at the 0.05 level of significance. Hence the framed null hypothesis is accepted in favour of alternative hypothesis. There is no positive correlations between divergent productions ability and socio economic status of 9th standard girls of rural private school. Discussion and Conclusion Boys are more open minded, free thinking, bold, hence current affairs knowledge will be more and these all may lead them to have maximum divergent production ability than the girls. Girls are hard workers, prompt, punctual, and honest, they attain maximum divergent production ability as compared to boys. There is a need to execute properly planned deliberate and conscious efforts on the part of teachers, parents, members of the society, children themselves for the appropriate nurturing and role of stimulation of the divergent thinking urge and potential.
