is it B ?

1, doesnt give any information about the numbers in Set T.

2, the numbers being consecutive makes life easier..

let S = { s, s+1, s+2, s+3, s+4, s+5, s+6 }
and T = { t, t+1, t+2, t+3, t+4, T+5, t+6}

sum of numbers in S = 7s + 21

sum of numbers in T = 7T + 21

as they are same we get s = t.

median in first set = 3+s
median in second set = 3+t = 3+ s.. which is equal..

Please correct me if I'm wrong.
The option 2 is saying "median of set consists of five consecutive S".
Let this set be X, which is subset of S. But we don't know which five values comprises of X.

My answer would be E

I see it now..

can someone post the actual question...

Does the set consists of 5 numbers or 7 numbers ?

and if the median specified is for any 5 of them or consecutive 5 numbers?
