So 0,8 * 2000 = 1600 values evaluated at at least 325 000
So 400 are greater than 325 000 C must be true

Since we have 1600 houses at 325 000 or less and 400 at more than 325 000
We cannot conclude that the median is 325 000. The 1000th and 1001 th values could be either less than 325 000 or equals 325000. So B is out.

The average is the number of houses * prices divided by the total of houses.
So it could be written as (<= 325 000)(1600) + (400)((>325000) /2000
Therefore A is out

I donot think your assumption is wright- can you plz explain how you assumed the remaing 400 houses have values more than 325000. As nothing is mentioned about the remaining 400 houses

According to prompt 80% of h are at 325 or less, what if 1600h valued 324.9$ or 1600h valued 325$ other 400h valued 300$

Since question must be true, C cannot be correct answer

none of the other 400 houses can be valued at $300000 because those valuation is already included in less than or equal to 325000 other 400 houses must have valuation greater than 325000 as such c must be correct

B and C both are correct

80% of 2000 -->1600 homes <=325000

Remaining homes= 2000-1600
=400

Median : (1000, 1001 Location values)/2
which will be atmost 325000

It is mentioned in the question. 80% are valued at 325k$ or less, therefore the remaining 20% (400 homes) must be valued at a higher price than 325k$.
