1. Answer: D. A or B depending on the distribution of the sample

Step-by-step explanation:

Given: A question ask about how many hours per week do you watch television?

Total participants = 300

Since all participants are different ,  so have their own answer to this question in numerical terms.

We use proportion or percentage to summarize data if data is categorical, but here data is numerical (continuous).

here , we can use either mean or median ( if it has outliers).

For this we need to check the distribution of the data, if it is normal then Mean, standard deviation, and range would be a better option (as mean is the best measure of tendency)otherwise Median, IQR, and range would be a better option .

hence, the correct option is D. A or B depending on the distribution of the sample
