40, 41,42,43,44,45,46

median =43

AM = (40+41+42+43+44+45+46)/7 =43

Difference = 43-43=0

Average (arithmetic mean) of the given series= \(\frac{(40+41+42+43+44+45+46)}{7}\)= 43
Median of the given series is the middle value:
Middle Value is 43. So, median = 43

Difference= 43-43= 0

Answer: A.

Kudos please if you like my explanation!

If a given set of numbers are in Arithmetic Progression (AP), then
their Arithmetic Mean = their Median.
This is true for every AP series.

So, in that case difference between Arithmetic Mean and Median is 0.

We can observe that the given set of numbers are in AP (With a common difference of 1).
Hence difference between Arithmetic Mean and Median will be 0.
Answer is A

==> For consecutive integers, the median and the average is equal. Thus, the difference is always 0.

The answer is A.
Answer: A

Fun fact -> For any Arithmetic progression => Mean = Median = Average of the first and the last term.

Hence the mean = median => Difference = ZERO.


Hence A.
