So Range of P can never be less than range of Q or A)Range P ≥ Range Q.. A

Sent from my iPad using GMAT Club Forum mobile appHi, Not always.. Two cases.. P is 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and Q is 1,2,3,4,5,6... Median is different P is 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and Q is 1,2,3,5,6,7... Median is 4 in each case so Same So it can be same or different in the given scenario

Median is 4 in each case so Same So it can be same or different in the given scenario[/quote] Hi chetan2uSet P {a, b, c, d, e, f, g} is P {1,2,3,4,5,6,7} Set Q {a, b, c, d, e, f } is Q {1,2,3,5,6,7 } This means that a=1, b=2, c=3 and so on. But in set P d=4, whereas d=5 in set Q. I think the two values of d in set P & Q must be same.. Plz correct me if i am wrong. Because if not so, than Set P {a, b, c, d, e, f, g} = {2,3,4,5,6,7,8} Range= 6 Set Q {a, b, c, d, e, f } = Q {1,4,5,6,7,8 } range = 7 where Range(P) < Range(Q)

Sent from my iPad using GMAT Club Forum mobile appHi.. It is not necessary that the elements are in ascending order... (a, b, c, d,e, f) is (1,2,3,5,6,7) (a, b, c, d, e, f, g) is (1,2,3,5,6,7,4).. So both cases median is 4...

I couldn't think of a case where Range of P = Range of Q, I considered the following sets: P: 0 to 6 so Q: 0 to 5 P: 1 to 7 so Q: 1 to 6 P: 3 to 3 so Q 3 to 2 P: 6 to 0 so Q 6 to 1 In all the above Range of P is 6 and Range of Q is 5, so I picked answer as E i.e. Range P > Range of Q.
