hey guys!
can you pls give me your view about this question!

38, 69, 22,73, 31,47, 13, 82

Which of the following numbers is greater than three-fourth of the numbers but less than one-fourth of the numbers in the list above?

a- 56
b- 68
c- 69
d- 71
e- 73


The list contains 8 numbers: 13, 22, 31, 38, 47, 69, 73, and 82.

More than three-fourth of the numbers so more than 6 numbers (3/4*8=6) and less than one-fourth of the numbers so less than 2 number (1/4*8=2) means more than 69 (6th greatest number) and less than 73. From the answer choices only 71 satisfies this condition.

Answer: D.

Important:- Arrange the numbers in ascending order first.

13, 22, 31, 38, 47, 69, 73, 82

3/4th of the number list represents- 69 (6th number)
remaining 1/4th list represents 73 (7 th number)

71 fits in between above 2

A) 56
B) 68
C) 69
D) 71
E) 73


Arrange the numbers in ascending order:
13, 22, 31, 38, 47, 69, 73, 82 (Just cross check the count to ensure that you didn't miss anything)

How many numbers do we see?
8, alright.

What's (1/4)8?
2.

What's (3/4)8?
6.

We're asked to find a number that are greater than 6 numbers in the list AND smaller than the remaining two.
13, 22, 31, 38, 47, 69, 73, 82

13, 22, 31, 38, 47, 69: Find a number greater than any of these numbers.
73, 82: Find a number smaller than any of these numbers.

Only 71 fits the description.

Ans: "D"

It made me think a lot. GMAT literally plays with language. This is not more than a 600 level question (and that too because of the usage of the language)
