Total number of people \(= 2+8+x+7+8=25+x\)

if \(x\) is even the then total number of people will be ODD, hence the median will be the mid value. As it is mentioned that the median is not represented in the chart and mid value will be a number from the chart, so it implies that \(x\) is not EVEN. So option A, C & E are out

so \(x\) is either \(3\) or \(5\). if \(x\) is \(3\), then the total number will be \(25+3=28\), hence the median will be mid value of 14th & 15th number. as 14th & 15th number in this case will be same \((a+1)\). Hence the median will be from the chart which is not possible.

So \(x=5\)

Option D

=>
The sum of numbers for a+1 and a+2 is 15 = 7 + 8. If 2 + 8 + x = 15, we don’t have the median on the table.
Thus, 10 + x = 15 and we have x = 5.

Therefore, the answer is D.
Answer : D
