More specifically..on the y-axis of the graph.
Looking at the first statement, most players weighed between 150 and 175 pounds.
Well, all the red circles that represent each of the players fall between 190 and 200...
...not really between 150 and 175.
Which means we can try to find the given interval that encompasses 190 to 200.
Only option D gives us the proper interval.
175 to 225 covers 190 and 200.
Which makes sense right? It's hard to run around the bases for an athlete who's so skinny
a gust of wind can blow him over or, conversely, he's so heavy that running halfway to first
feels like running halfway to the moon...So the answer is (D).
