C

The median of Y and the Mean of Y being greater than those of X already tells us how the data is dispersed

PLugged in some values and got C.


S1 = { 1,3,5,21,23} ==>> Avg = 10.6 which is greater than 5 the median

S2 = {7,9,11,31,35} ==>> Avg = 186. whihcs again > median whihc is 11

Combining S1 and S2

SCombo = { 1,3,5,7,9,....35} Avg = 14.6

Med = 10

So the answer is C
