3. You're right -- but the mode has nothing to do with the median.

The number which appears most often in a set of numbers. Example: in {6, 3, 9, 6, 6, 5, 9, 3} the Mode is 6 (it occurs most often).

4. Mode: The number which appears most often in a set of numbers.
So the answer is clearly D as all the numbers only appear once. BTW, the question said 6 seashells but it has only 5 numbers.
