    this is just a guess, but I think IQR is the best measurement for both. Not 100% sure.

    i always thought that standard deviation is better measure for spread than IQR in any type of data.

    I just read that when data has outliers, it is best to use the IQR. And both movies and games has outliers.

    So that eliminates both B and D?

    i have a hunch that IQR is better for movies and std. deviation is better for basketball (as the spread for basketball is not max in the middle and std. deviation considers all points from the set unlike IQR )

    you could be right...because the games have outliers but they are not that far spaced
