# Range of the data is always from the data. State whether the statement is true or false.

**Solution:**

Given, __Range__ of the data is always from the data.

We have to determine if the given statement is true or false.

We know that the difference between the highest and lowest observations in a given __data__ is called its Range.

Example: consider 2, 5, 20, 17, 19

Arranging the data in __ascending order__, we get

2, 5, 17, 19, 20

Highest observation = 20

Lowest observation = 2

Range = highest observation - lowest observation

= 20 - 2

= 18

The range of the given data is 18.

Therefore, the range is not from the data always.
