hi vinod,

since the height increased by a constant amount ....let say k..

so at the end of 1st yr the height will be 4+k

similarly end of 6th yr will be 4+6k and 4th yr will be 4+4k

given that end of 6th yr = 1/5th taller than it was at end of 4th yr.....

==> 4+6k = 4+4k+ 1/5(4+4...

So B cant be the answer.............

From A we just know that ...

To make it simple.....

since the median of the 15 values is 13,000 and mean of 15 values is 15,000....

x be the individual value of 1st 7 values <=13000

y be the individual value of last 7 values > 13000

for reducing the complexity i hv taken the first 7 values commonly as x and same...
