You should remember that median represents the middle number, hence, you need to order them by value the terms such that:

`10, 13, 15, 16, 17, 32`

Since the number of terms is even, then you need to select two terms that fall in the middle such that:

`15, 16`

You need to evaluate the arithmetical mean of these terms such that:

`(15+16)/2 = 31/2`

Hence, evaluating the median of th given numbers yields `31/2` , hence, you need to select the d) answer: None of the above.

D) None of the above

If you find the actual median it would be 15.5 which is not an option
