Hey Baner, ain't sure if this is the right place, but could you explain the concept of range etc?

Thanks.

range = least number in the set - biggest number in the set

mode = number which occurs maximum times in a set e.g. 1,1,1,1,2,3...mode is 1 here

median = the middle number of a set arrangged in ascending order

mean = median : when the set is of equally spaced numbers

Why is it not C?

i mean combining both statemetns 1 and 2, we know the number of elements in the sets has to be 2.

A) !

1) the set must consist of distinct (no repetitions) numbers: 0 2 or 2 4 => only 2 numbers can be in the set, because the difference between any two must be the same

2) insuff

A also

With statement 1 it can only be (0,-2) or (-2,-4) or (0,2) or (2,4)
Only 2 numbers can be in this set

I am not sure about statement 2, it is not clear about the negative number and the range with this situation. I would think it is not suff

1) We have distinct elements with difference between any two elements to be 2. Say if we have 0 and 2, can we have a third number? It can't be 4, since the difference of 0 and 4 is not 2. It can't be 1, or -2, or anything else, either. So we can only have two numbers in the set. Sufficient.

2) The range is 2 with distinct elements. We can have (0,2) or (0,1,2). Can't determine the number of elements in the set. Insufficient.

(A)
