Re: The box-and-whisker plot shown above could be a representati [#permalink]

I have posted a detailed video on YouTube which talks about all aspects of Box and Whisker Plot.



Hope it helps!

How can we assume the plot is drawn to scale?

Beyond the point.

The plot does not need to draw or not the scale . It is not a geometric figure. Basically, They are quantities in representation as plot

Oh, so how are we taking it as 'symmetrical' and eliminating C,D and E?

But here is nothing symmetric there

The plot is evenly spaced

So only the first one is true

The other options are not because are not evenly spaced

I suggest to watch the video by BrushMyQuant. It is very well explained the plot

I watched the vid - thanks for the suggestion. I now get why the answer is A if the plot is evenly spaced.

But if the plot is evenly spaced, wouldn't it be better for the question to mention it (rather than assume it by looking at the diagram)?
