Answer is (B).

Put the numbers except n in increasing order, you'll have 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9

It is a series of 8 numbers and you had one more integer: n

- If n\(\le\)5, then 5 will be the median (it will be in position 5 out of 9 in increasing order)

- If n\(\ge\)6, then 6 will be the median (it will be in position 5 out of 9 in increasing order)

==> Median will either be 5 or 6

1
if we start with 1 inclusive

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

so here 5 is the median

if we keep 10 inclusive

2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

so 6 is the median

hence its B

i got B. n can be any number from 2 to 9, inclusive. i just looked at the case where n=2, which is the lowest it can be, and n=9, which is the highest n can be.

For the first case, median was 5, and second case, median is 6.
