The median of 2,7,4,8,9,1 is
A. 4

B. 6

C. 5.5

D. 7

Answer :

To find median, we need to arrange data in ascending order.

We have


1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 9


Total number of observations, n = 6 (even).


When n is even, median is found as follows.




Median = Mean of 3rd term and 4th term


Median = Mean of 4 and 7 [ from the arranged data, 3rd term = 4 and 4th term = 7]




Median = 5.5


Thus, option (C) is correct.
