Yes this is very simple. Ans D

I think the fastest way is just to write the number is order and you see there are 8 of them. So it has to be between the 6th & 7th numbers.

This can sorted into:
13 22 31 38 47 69 73 82

three fourth of the numbers:
13 22 31 38 47 69

one fourth of the numbers:

Arrange the numbers in ascending order:
13, 22, 31, 38, 47, 69, 73, 82 (Just cross check the count to ensure that you didn't miss anything)

How many numbers do we see?
8, alright.

What's (1/4)8?
2.

What's (3/4)8?
6.

We're asked to find a number that are greater than 6 numbers in the list AND smaller than the remaining two.
13, 22, 31, 38, 47, 69, 73, 82

13, 22, 31, 38, 47, 69: Find a number greater than any of these numbers.
73, 82: Find a number smaller than any of these numbers.

Only 71 fits the description.

Ans: "D"
