how do we know all the elements in S are positive? what if we have -3, -6, -9, 0, 3, etc?

REVISED VERSION OF THIS QUESTION IS BELOW:

Is the mean of set S greater than its median?

(1) Set S consist of consecutive multiples of 3 --> set S is evenly spaced. One of the most important properties of evenly spaced set (aka arithmetic progression) is: in any evenly spaced set the arithmetic mean (average) is equal to the median. So, the mean of S = the median of S. Sufficient.

(2) The sum of all terms of set S is 75 --> if S={75} then mean=median but if S={0, 0, 75} then (mean=25)>(0=median). Not sufficient.

If there is an even number of observations, then there is no single middle value; the median is then usually defined to be the mean of the two middle values

what if there is an even number of elements in the Set S,For example 27,30,33,36 Mean=31.5 Median=30 or 33 then?

1. Let set is two number (3,6) mean=4.5, median=4.5 now let take 3 nos. (15, 18, 21) mean=18, Median=18 now lets take a bigger set (-12, -9,-6,-3,0,3,6,9) Median = -1.5, Mean = -12/8= -3/2 = -1.5

A is answer Golden rule for Consecutive integers is already explained just a addition

True, as Bunuel said, Mean=Median or evenly spaced sets, so (i) sufficient in (ii) the sets have a sum of 75 ; we can have many combinations to do so (0,0,75),(25,25,25), etc..-insufficient (A)wins _________________
