My guess will be -2.

It's clear that the mode of A is 4.

I'm not entirely sure how to take the mode of B if there are two -5 and two -7. So I'll pretend it's -6.

The mode of C should be 0, as I know that a uniform distribution has the same mode, median and mean.

So 4+(-6)+0 = -2.

I hope someone else can enlighten me on this question.

A mode is a number that has the highest frequency in a data set.
So in Set A.. 4 occurs maximum times... in B its -7 and -5..C has no mode...
so sum=+4-7-5=-8.

I hope below solution helps :-

Mode of a set of numbers is the element in the set which occurs maximum number of times:

In set A, 4 is the mode.
In set B, both -7 and -5 are the modes (It is a bimodal set)
In set C, there is no mode.

Sum of the modes = 4 + (-5) + (-7) = -8.

Hope this is all right!

Answer is -8
Mode for A: 4
Mode for B: -7 and -5
Mode for C:0
Thus sum is -8
