I have a question from the 2020 paper, Question 2 a iii)
My answer is below
The median for females is 227, greater than the median for males. Females median is well outside the middle 50% of males data. We can see the gap is big enough so that if there is a different sample, there isn’t the concern that medians might overlap.
The data in the graph was collected from Humpbacks found along the west coast of NZ. The claim being made refers to all coasts of NZ. While Female Humpbacks tend to weigh more than males on the west coast of NZ, it wouldn’t be accurate to apply this conclusion to all coasts because different coasts have different landscapes and temperatures, which could affect the data.
So there is no mention of data not being applicable to all coasts in the marking schedule but would my answer still be okay?
