A and B are cancelling F and G.
So we are left with 0 1 and 2 which is 3 /7 0,42

The median is the middel value so 1. So D

D. 3/7 less
E. 4/7 less




Here median of 7 labelled points = middle point of these 7 points i.e = 1 on the number line

and mean of 7 labelled points = \(\frac{(-4 - 3 + 0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 )}{7}\) \(=\)\(\frac{3}{7}\)

Hence mean is less than median = \(1-\frac{3}{7}\) \(=\) \(\frac{4}{7}\)less

Option E
