The correct answer is 6-10
0-5 because 25th percentile can also be known as the 1st quartile or the first 25% of it. so since the medium is 8 then it would be the first interval or 0-5.

if i am wrong please let me know.

B: 6 - 10

Step-by-step explanation:

We have been given a bar graph and we are asked to find 25th percentile in located in which interval.

Let us find total number of data points by adding the heights of all bars together.

text{Total data points}=5+6+8+10+5

text{Total data points}=34

Now let us find 25% of 34.

25%text{ of }34=frac{25}{100}times 34

25%text{ of }34=0.25times 34

25%text{ of }34=8.5approx 9

So 9th data point will be close to 25th percentile as it has 8.5 data points below itself.

Let us see 9th data point will falls in which interval.

We can see from our bar graph that interval 0-5 contains 5 data point and data points between 5 to 11 lies in interval 6-10, therefore, option B is the correct choice as 9 lies between 5 and 11.
