Problem 1.12 (b) and (c)

Problem 1.12 (b) and (c)

Im not understanding on B)

Why it says half the data are at most hmed ? Im not understanding what it means!

on C)
Im not sure i understood the question.
It says yn is perturbed by e, and e -> infinite
It asks what happens to hmean and hmed

To me, hmean would increase , since this yn point is perturbed to positive infinite.
Even if its an outlier, it will end up increasing it.

hmed would remain the same.

Would anyone clarify?

A simple answer is not necessarily wrong :)
