Expert Answer:

The given data can be arranged in ascending order as:
7,9,10,12,14,16,16,17,18,19,20
Here, N = 11
 
Median = (N+1)/2 th term = 6th term = 16
Mode = 16 (since it occurs he maximum number of times)
Mean = sum of all observations/ number of observations = 158/11
 
Now, it can be clearly observed that the given relationship is not true in case of the given data.
