Find the mean. median and mode(s) of the data. (DONE)
Choose the measure that best represents the data. Explain your reasoning. (WHAT?!?)
The mean is a fulcrum (balance point) for the distribution, which is most influenced by deviant scores. These are more likely to be found in skewed distributions. In a normal distribution, the measures of central tendency are essentially the same.
The median is the 50th percentile, with half the scores valued above and half below.
The mode is the most frequently observed score.
This information should help you with your choices and explanations.
