  1. I am not going to go through all this but immediately question your answer to the first one.
    You had 27 employees
    so
    13 were below median
    the 14 th was median
    13 were above median
    NOW you add a 28 th employee with a much bigger salary
    now you have 14 below median and 14 above median
    SO the median is now halfway between the 14th and the 15 th.
    It changed.

    120,000 is much more than a standard deviation above the mean, I bet it is the highest and therefore the range likely increased.

    It is way above the mean. Of course it changed the mean.

  4. Number one is D because it wants you to identify that the median is not affected by outliers but the mean is. That's why it uses "not likely" and "likely."
