Dint get this question at all.. when I first read it....but I see that the 40% have to be 3..since they have covered the other two range of numbers .....

35% <2>=4
so the 40% have to be = 3

Agree with C

first 35% of the imployee are either 1 or 2

Last 25% of the employees are >4

while middle 40% of the employee are 3

here the median number is (50th % + 51st %)/2 = 3
