What is the range of set S?

(1) The median of set S is 12.

(2) The lowest term in Set S is the smallest prime number and the largest term in set S is equal to the square of the first term multiplied by 7.



Also, please explain me the significance of saying lowest term and then first term. From my understanding, we can't say they are same from option 2.

Thanks.

This is a poor quality question.

A sequence, by definition, is an ordered list of terms. While a set, is a collection of elements without any order. So, "the first term of a set" does not make any sense.

I guess it should be "The smallest term in Set S is the smallest prime number and the largest term in set S is equal to the square of the smallest term multiplied by 7." In this case the answer would indeed be B: range = 7*2^2 - 2 = 26.

Ignore this question.
