apparently both are insufficient individually.

take both of them together.

1 2 3 11 12 13 14 .... median is 11

3 5 9 12 16 18 19 median is 12....so no clear picture....thus E

Hi All,

gurpreetsingh's approach to TEST VALUES was perfect for this DS question, but you can make it even easier. The prompt did NOT state that the 7 numbers had to be different/distinct/unique, so you CAN use duplicate numbers to save some time.

We're asked to find the MEDIAN of a group of 7 numbers. To do so, we need to arrange the numbers from least to greatest, then find the "4th" term.

Fact 1: 3 of the numbers are less than 10

Let's TEST VALUES:

IF the numbers are...
4 4 4 11 11 11 11
Then the median is 11

4 4 4 12 12 12 12
Then the median is 12
Fact 1 is INSUFFICIENT

Fact 2: 4 of the numbers are greater than 10

We can use the SAME TESTs that we used above...
Fact 2 is INSUFFICIENT

Combined, we can ALSO use the SAME TESTs from above.
Combined, INSUFFICIENT
