# The abscissa of the point of intersection of the less than type and of the more than type cumulative frequency curves of a grouped data gives its

a. mean

b. median

c. mode

d. all the three above

**Solution:**

Ogive is a free hand graph

The abscissa (x-coordinate) of the intersection of the less than type and of the more than type gives the median

In the graph, the point of intersection is (15, 40)

x coordinate 15 is the median

Therefore, cumulative frequency curves of a grouped data gives its median.
