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 Director Joined: 20 Apr 2016

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
