Solution

## The correct option is A Both Assertion and Reason are correct, but Reason is not the correct explanation of AssertionThere are 9 observations and the ordered data is 25, 31, 32, 34, 39, 42, 43, 45, 46. By applying the formula for median when the number of values is odd, the median is at the 5th position which is 39. The reason is not the correct explanation of Assertion as the number of observations (n) is odd is not discussed.
