Is the standard deviation of set S greater than the standard deviation of set T ?

A) The range of set S is greater than the range of set T B) The mean of set S is greater than the mean of set T

Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but Statement (2) ALONE is not sufficient Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but Statement (1) ALONE is not sufficient BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient EACH statement ALONE is sufficient Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient

Standard deviation is basically the deviation of the terms from the mean.

Statement 1: No information about the Mean,number of terms hence not sufficient. Statement 2: No information about the number of terms, hence not sufficient.

Even if we take them together, we cannot calculate the |mean - term| for all the terms. We even do not have number of terms.

Suppose that S is (3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3,1000) and T is (50,100,150,200,250,300,350,400,450,500,550) then the range of S is great than that of T while the standard deviation of S is less than that of T, regardless of their means
