Question

Question 6 (ii)
Give one example of a situation in which
(ii) The mean is not an appropriate measure of central tendency but the median is an appropriate measure of central tendency.


Solution

(ii) The following data represents the marks obtained by 12 students in a test.
     48,59,46,52,54, 46,97, 42, 49,58, 60, 99
     In this case, it can be observed that there are some observations which are very far from other observations. Therefore, here, median will be calculated as an appropriate measure of central tendency.
