Considering option 1

If 11<n<22

we can clearly say that the median is n ..But n can be any value from 12 to 21

now if we look into the second option it says the set has 2 modes 11 and 22 So all we can say is n is not 11 or 22

it may b n <11 ( other than 1 and 10) or 11<n<22 or n >22 (other than 35)

So we will b having 3 different medians in this case

hence no option is sufficient in this case to answer the question

Bunuel Correct me If Im wrong

Statement 1 states that the series in ascending order is 1, 10, 11, 11, n, 22, 22, 35, 47
The median here is n. Sufficient

Statement 2 states that n is not equal to any other number in the series. This means there may be 3 instances, n <11 ( other than 1 and 10) or 11<n<22 or n >22 (other than 35 and 47).
So there will be 3 different values of median.
Hence insufficient

E for me

Stmnt 1 says n can be anything . n can be 11.1 or 21.9 .... NO UNIQUE VALUE. Hence not sufficient

Stmnt 2- Clearly insufficient

Combine - Insufficient

OA pls? Ill be surprised if "E" is wrong

What is the value of median of the numbers 1, 10, 11, 11, 22, 22, 35, 47, and n?

(1) 11 < n < 22

(2) The set has two modes: 11 and 22.

In a what question in DS - we need a unique answer and that too an answer which not in variable form but a numeric value .

In this question since the number of terms are odd . The median will be the middle value that is the fifth term .

St 1 : n can have multiple values between 11 and 22 . Therefore the 5th term could be 12 , 13, ..upto 21 . Hence not Sufficient
St 2 : Set has two modes means , they appear maximum number of times in this series of number .
But we have only one value for n . But it is given 11 , 22 are two modes . So n cannot be 11 and 12 . And it can be any other value other than 11 and 22 . Hence not sufficient .

together 1 and 2
N can be 12 , 13, ..upto 21 .
Hence the ans is E .

Press Kudos if you like my post .
