Mean = Median
They're asking you to disprove each statement (i.e. find sets in which mean=median and the statement is also false).

Quote:
1)set t consists of evenly spaced numbers.

Possible, but not necessarily true.
t = {1,3,4,5,7} | Mean = 4 | Median = 4

Quote:
2)set T consists of odd number of terms.

Disprove.
t = {4,4} | Mean = 4 | Median = 4
t = {1,3,4,5,7} | Mean = 4 | Median = 4

Quote:
3)set T has no mode.

Disprove.
t = {4,4} | Mean = 4 | Median = 4 | Mode = 4
t = {1,3,4,5,7} | Mean = 4 | Median = 4 | no mode

Quote:
4)None of the above.

Only choice left.
