We know that the average length of earthworms is closer to the average length of sample A than sample B, so the number of earthworms in sample A must be greater.

We know nothing about the median of the earthworms.

We know nothing about the range of the length of earthworms, as we know nothing about the minimum or maximum lengths of the earthworms.

The answer is A.

We know nothing about the median of the earthworms.

We know nothing about the range of the length of earthworms, as we know nothing about the minimum or maximum lengths of the earthworms.

The answer is A.

Hi sir,

Can you please throw some more light on why option A is correct?

Is it always true for the average of two different sets that whichever set's average the total average is closer to will have greater number of elements?
