Which of the following sets has the same standard deviation as set (a,b,c) ?
1. (ab,b^2,bc)
2. (2a, b+a, c+b)
3. (0 , b+a, c+b)
4. (ab,bc,ac)
5. (ab+c, a+ab, ab+b)

Explanation given:
The standard deviation of a set does not change when a constant is added to all the members of the set.
The correct answer is E.

In case of E all the constants are different. Hence teh best option possible is 4 and not

If you rewrite set 5 as
(a+ab, b+ab, c+ab)

ab is the constant you're adding to a, b, and c.

Hope this clears things up.
