Which of the following numbers is greater than threefourth of the numbers but less than onefourth 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 threefourth of the numbers so more than 6 numbers (3/4*8=6) and less than onefourth 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
Answer: D

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, 8213, 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)
