2. Since I cannot see the data, I cannot answer your question.

Mode = most frequently observed score.

My mnemonic for mode is "pie a la mode," which means pie with ice cream, the most frequently observed way of having pie with something on it. Which scores, if any, have the most scoops of ice cream?
