in a mathematics class, half of the students scored 91 on an achievement test. with the exception of a few students who scored 47, the remaining students scored 71. which of the following statements is true about the distribution of the scores?
a: the mean is greater than the median
b: the mean is greater than the mode
c: the mean is less than the median
d: the mean and the mode are the same

The mode is 91 along with the median (50th percentile), with all the scores lower. The mean acts as a fulcrum (balance point) for the distribution, which means it is most influenced by deviant scores.
This should lead you to the answer.
