# The variance of $n$ natural number is

$\begin {array} {1 1} (A)\;\large\frac{n^2+1}{12} & \quad (B)\;\large\frac{n^2-1}{12} \\ (C)\;\large\frac{(n+1)(2n+1)}{6} & \quad (D)\;\bigg[ \large\frac{n(n+1)}{2} \bigg]^2 \end {array}$

$\overline x = \large\frac{1+2+3+....+n}{n}$
$= \large\frac{(n+1)}{2}$
$\therefore \sigma^2 = \large\frac{ \Sigma x_i^2}{n}$ $- ( \overline x)^2$
$= \large\frac{ \Sigma n^2}{n}$ $- \large\frac{(n+1)^2}{2}$
$\large\frac{(n+1)(2n+1)}{6n}$ $- \bigg( \large\frac{n+1}{2} \bigg)^2$
$= \large\frac{n^2-1}{12}$
