1.
Your sorted list contains only 9 of the 11 numbers, so 33 is not correct.
If you use the complete sorted list of 11 numbers, I am sure you'll get it right. You're getting there.

2. \$675 is correct.

3. 11 is correct. It is the most occurring value.

1. You only arranged 9 of the 11 in ascending order -- so your median is wrong.
