    Q3
    maximum

    the interval minimum/median represents 50% of the data in the lower half.
    the interval median/maximum represents 50% of the data in the upper half.
    the interval Q1/Q3 represents 50% of the data in the middle half, which better represents the population.

    So choose the appropriate interval and post your answer for a check if you wish.
