How to take the median in the 18th one is it percentage wise or week wise

Also is the 19th one correct?

The question is asking what could be the median number of weeks of unemployment. It would be in the range where we reach 50% of the workers.

Can you share your approach for this question?

We have a total of 18 million (10 million Manufacturing + 8 million Service) unemployed workers

The question is asking if 1 person out of the 18 million is picked, what is the probability it is a service industry worker unemployed for 26 weeks or more.

Number of Service Industry workers unemployed for 26 weeks or more = 9% of 8 million = 720,000

The probability will be \large\frac{service\;industry\;workers\;unemployed\;>\;than\;26\;weeks}{total\;unemployed\;people} = \frac{720000}{18\;million} = **0.04**

**Ans: A**
