A: There is one outlier that indicates an unusually small number of cars were in the parking lot that day. B; There are two outliers that indicate an unusually small number of cars were in the parking lot those two days. C: There is one outlier that indicates an unusually large number of cars were in the parking lot that day. D: There are two outliers that indicate an unusually large number of cars were in the parking lot those two days.

Accepted Solution

A:

C.
On the 6th day, the cars parked in the lot were 27, which is the highest figure in the entire two weeks period. The other days the numbers varied with slight differences which is normal. However, the difference between the 6th day and the next day which recorded the highest number is very big. A difference of 13 cars is quiet large.
