    @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?

    "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")

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