Hello Bunuel,

What if : set S = {1,2,3,4} ; Mean=2.5
subset of S ={1,2} ; Mean =1.5

Then option 2 " All elements in set S are equal" does not fit in.
Please let me where am i going wrong.

Thanks,
Saba

"The mean of set \(S\) does not exceed mean of ANY subset of set \(S\)".

Your example does not work.

My understanding is that set S has only one element by count not by value... therefore {X,X...} is not possible. Please help understand.


Option 1, Set S contains only one element means that there is only one elements in S: {X}. This option is not necessarily true. Please re-read the solution.


Hi,

I am confused with second option. If i didn't misunderstood the question, it state that mean of Set S should be less than mean of its subset.

Lets Consider:

S =(2,4,6) - mean =4
S'= (4,6) - mean = 5

Here Set S has different values. Please advise.

Thanks,
Arpit

I'd advice to re-read the stem and the solution carefully and go through the discussion once more.
