If A, B, and C are standard deviations of Set A, Set B, and Set C respectively, then which of the following is the correct order of standard deviation of A, B and C

A) A = B = C
B) C < A < B
C) A < C < B
D) A < B = C
E) B = C < A



standard deviation of B and C are same. numbers in both sets are equally spaced, at a distance of 1.

Out of the options, only D or E could really be the answers.

between set A and B, B has a number 0 which is further away from mean, this adds more dispersion in set B.
IMO option D.
