@Ganpat How would it be E? A statistic is a numerical value or function, e.g. a mean or standard deviation, used to describe a sample or population So the CORRECT answer would be... B: Ted Williams's batting AVERAGE in 1941 Make sense?

3. Ganpat

oh, i missed that year stuff... 1941.. and i was taking it as from science point of view.. static means, what it does does not change.. so ur fav color, what i thought :D :D :-p nyways u r right...

4. ChemicalX

Oh, yeah, i can see your way too. Thanks :)

"A person who dies in an auto accident " sounds very much like a "statistic" in the journalistic sense. However, \( \ both\) A and B are averages of a certain category of information, so both of them are statistics. (remember to "check all that apply")

6. ChemicalX

Yeah, i over looked the "check all that apply" sorry :/

Guys, A. The average annual rainfall in Lima, Peru ... this might change, as they have not specified year, so it might change every year...

8. ChemicalX

True...
