Expert Answer:

Srinath:

The numbers in order: 135, 155, 185, 185, 200, 250

Since, the number of observations is even, Median is the mean of the middle two values.

So, median = Mean of 185 and 185 = 185

Mode is the observation that appears most often.

Here, 185 appears twice.

So, Mode is 185.

Akhtar:

The numbers in order: 180, 182, 185, 185, 188, 190

Since, the number of observations is even, Median is the mean of the middle two values.

So, median = Mean of 185 and 185 = 185

So, median = 185

Mode is the observation that appears most often.

Here, 185 appear twice.

So, Mode is 185.
