    The value 2 is obviously an outlier. However both of the choices for one outlier state ".........books were rented out on that day." However the data relates to "......the number of books checked out from a library during the first two weeks of the month". Therefore there does not seem to be a correct choice, the reason being the data relates to a two week period, not to a particular day.

    When I look at the question again, " that day" relates to the day relating to the outlier value 2. Therefore the first of the choices is correct.

    "There is one outlier, indicating very few books were rented out on that day." is correct.
