Two sets of numbers have the same mean, even though they are not identical. The set that is considered to be more consistent is (A) The set that has the largest number. (B) The set with more positive numbers. (C) The set with the smaller variance. (D) The set with the larger variance.
(C) because a smaller varience shows more consistency in the numbers.
C- Because a smaller variance means the probability of average being the same for two data sets from the same population is low.
C, as the smaller the variance, then the closer to the mean all the numbers lie.
