  • The formula used for this problem is $Mean=A +\large\frac{\sum f_id_i}{\sum f_i}$
  • Standard deviation $\sigma = \sqrt { \large\frac{f_id_i^2}{\sum f_i} -\bigg( \large\frac{\sum f_id_i}{\sum f_i} \bigg)^2}$
Step 1:
Mean $= A+\large\frac{\sum f_id_i}{\sum f_i}$
Where by $A= \bigg(\large\frac{n+1}{2} \bigg)$ th observation
$\qquad= \bigg( \large\frac{9+1}{2} \bigg) $th observation
$\qquad= 5th$ obsevation.
Step 2:
Maen $=64+ \large\frac{0}{100}$
$\qquad= 64$
Step 3:
Standard deviation $\sigma = \sqrt { \large\frac{f_id_i^2}{\sum f_i} -\bigg( \large\frac{\sum f_id_i}{\sum f_i} \bigg)^2}$
$\qquad= \sqrt { \large\frac{286}{100} -\bigg(\frac{ 0}{100}\bigg)^2}$
$\qquad= \sqrt {2.86}$
$\qquad= 1.69$
Hence B is the correct answer.
