1) Two sets with same range can have different standard deviation

2) Mean being higher or lower, doesnt tell us about std deviation

1+2) even if same range and and one mean is higher than other, we cant tell which has higher deviation

Proposition 1:

Set A: (1, 1, 1, 1, 1, .........100, 100, 100) - Large standard dev, mean is 50
Set B: (1, 50, 50, 50, 50, 50, .....100) - Small standard dev, mean is 50

Insufficient

Proposition 2:

Set A: (1, 1, 1, 1, 1, .........100, 100, 100) - Mean is 50 , Large standard dev
Set B: (1, 49, 49, 49, 49, 49, 49 , .....100) - Mean is 49, small standard dev

Insufficient

Combined - No new information

Will the answer be different if question stem says that "There are 100 different positive integers "
