The mean maximum temperature for the cities in South America was greater than that for the cities in Oceania.
At least one city reporting fine weather had a maximum temperature less than 0°C.
For the Asian cities, the median minimum temperature was 12°C.

The answers would be, True, False and True.

Statement 1: Mean Maximum Temp for South America is 33.5 where as the mean max for Oceania is 27. Hence the answer is true.
Statement 2: All the minimum temps for cities with weather as fine are greater than 0. Negative temps are only available for cloudy and Bright weather conditions.
Statement 3: The set of minimum temps in Asian cities is {-3,-3,3,3,21,22,24,26}. The median is 12. Hence, True.

Please correct me if I am wrong!

Regards,
Arpan

Also Attaching the excel for this question.

1.The mean maximum temperature for the cities in South America was greater than that for the cities in Oceania.
Mean Max for South America = 32
Mean Max for Oceania = 27
TRUE

2. At least one city reporting fine weather had a maximum temperature less than 0°C.
None of the Cities with FINE weather has a maximum temerature less than 0. The lowest of the maximum tem for these fine weather cities is 5 degree for VAN
FALSE

3.For the Asian cities, the median minimum temperature was 12°C.
There are 8 Asian cities and their minimum temps listed in ascending order is: {-3,-3,3,3,21,22,24 and 26}
Median is the average of 4th and 5th terms (in this case 3 and 21) which is 12 degrees
Hence TRUE
