2. people ages can be have different uncountable.

3. people can tell exact that how many times they visit in a month. that is why, it is discrete.

4. tree heights etc are continuous data

its C D D C

any can tell me answers of  questions and formula of mean deviation ? if there any mistake plz quide me

m b yeh e ans aa ra h... i think thk h...

i hope thek ho ge dear phr  b last date tak wait kre ge conformation k lie ap ka soc 101 subject hai ?

main ny palya hi post kr dia ha formula.
