## The correct option is A 0.825 Mean = ∑ni=1fixi∑ni=1fi Here, n = 6 =6(2)+8(8)+(8.5)(10)+9(7)+7(8)+10(5)2+8+10+7+8+5=33040=8.25=¯x Now , mean deviation about mean would be , ∑ni=1fi|xi−¯x|∑ni=1fi = 2(2.25)+8(0.25)+10(0.25)+7(0.75)+8(1.25)+5(1.75)40=3340=0.825 ∴ Mean deviation about mean for his performance across 40 months about his average performance rating of 8.25 is 0.825 which shows he is quite consistent.
