Official Solution:


What is the median of data set A?

(1) No number in data set A is less than the average (arithmetic mean) of the set.

Since no number is less than the average, then no number is more than the average, which implies that the list contains identical elements: A={x, x, x, ...}. From this it follows that (the average)=(the median). But we don't know the value of \(x\), thus this statement is NOT sufficient.

(2) The average (arithmetic mean) of data set A is equal to the range of the set.

Not sufficient: if A={0, 0, 0, 0}, then (the median)=0, but if A={1, 2, 2, 3}, then (the median)=2.

(1)+(2) From (1) we have that the list contains identical elements. The range of all such sets is 0. Therefore, from (2) we have that (the average)=(the range)=0 and since from (1) we also know that (the average)=(the median), then (the median)=0. Sufficient.


Answer: C

Shouldn't the mention of Set A in (2) be Set S instead?

Can't the Data Set A (using Both the statements) be {1} , {2,2} or {3,3,3} etc ?
median can be 1,2 or 3 too.

Could you please explain why the above numbers can't be Data Set A.

{2,2} or {3,3,3} does not satisfy statement 2.
In the above mentioned set Average is not equal to Range
For , {2,2} Average = 2, Range = 0
{3,3,3}, Average = 3, range =0
Only set A= { x, x,x,x...} where x=0 satisfies both the statement, hence ans C.

Hi Bunuel
Can you please explain why we consider {0,0,0,0} & {1,2,2,3} for Set A? Is repetition of elements allowed in Sets?
How a Set is different from a List?

Set is different from data set and list in that in data set and list repetitions are allowed.
