Which set has the greatest standard deviation?

I. 1, 3, 5, 7, 9

II. 2, 4, 6, 8, 10

III. 1, -1, -3, -5, -7

* I
* II
* III
* I and II
* none

since this requires application of the SD formula.. can it appear in the GAMT?

Yes such questions appear in GMAT

You don't need to apply the SD formula. The numbers in the sets are all in increments of 2. Therefore, SD is the same for all.
