The box plots below show attendance at a local movie theater and high school basketball games: two box plots shown. The top one is labeled Movies. Minimum at 60, Q1 at 65, median at 95, Q3 at 125, maximum at 150. The bottom box plot is labeled Basketball games. Minimum at 90, Q1 at 95, median at 125, Q3 at 145, maximum at 150. Which of the following best describes how to measure the spread of the data? The IQR is a better measure of spread for movies than it is for basketball games. The standard deviation is a better measure of spread for movies than it is for basketball games. The IQR is the best measurement of spread for games and movies. The standard deviation is the best measurement of spread for games and movies.

Nvm thats correct so yes it would be A and B although you should have let the user work for their answer. one year ago IQR = interquartile range Read this: https://onlinecourses.science.psu.edu/stat100/node/12 IQR is better for movies and std. deviation is better for basketball (as the spread for basketball is not max in the middle and std. deviation considers all points from the set unlike IQR ) Therefore it would be A @enchanted_bubbles how many can you choose?
