    Which of the following best describes how to measure the spread of the data? a. The IQR is a better measure of spread for movies than it is for basketball games. b. The standard deviation is a better measure of spread for movies than it is for basketball games. c. The IQR is the best measurement of spread for games and movies. d. The standard deviation is the best measurement of spread for games and movies. I know D is wrong. I think it's A?

    I wrote it above. I said I think it's A, because my textbook says that if the distribution of data is symmetrical, the best measurement is standard deviation. But if the data is asymmetrical, the best measurement is IQR.
