And here are the potential answers...
It's asking us what pieces of information we need to make a box plot.
So we're talking about something that looks like this:
Now let's take a gander at what makes up this plot.
The minimum and maximum, to start. Well, all of our answers except D have the max and min.
So we can eliminate D. The box in between the min and max is made
up of quartile 1 and quartile 3, with the middle line being the median, or Q2.
Quartile 1 stands for the middle number between the minimum and the median.
Quartile 3 is the middle number between the median and the maximum.
The only answer choice that contains all of these... is B.
