What is the median of 30 numbers? Each of the numbers is greater more or equal to 3.

1) Each number <=6
2) The sum of the numbers is 104

Assuming they are integers (B) looks right.

104 = 3*30 +14
=> (30 -14) i.e 16 or more of the numbers are equal to three so the median is 3.

B is sufficient.

the set can have 3 scenarios

1) all 4
2) combinations of 3 and 5.
3) combination of 3, 4 and 5

In 2 and 3, the no of 3 should be equal to no of 5.
So median in all cases is 4.

Yes, this does hold true only if they are integers
Now, is that the catch in this question :roll: :roll:

it says number (3.5, 2.6, 4.7 etc) not integers (-2, 0, 3, 5 etc).
