The statistics of runs scored in a series by four batsmen are provided in the following table. Who is the most consistent batsman of these four?

 Batsman Average Standard deviation K 31.2 5.21 L 46.0 6.35 M 54.4 6.22 N 17.9 5.90
1. K
2. L
3. M
4. N

I think the answer is A. K

Average only gives the mean value, Standard Deviation gives how close to mean value (consistency) of a sample population distribution.

A standard deviation close to 0 means very close to mean value of a distribution.

Here K has the lowest SD (5.21)
selected ago by
M??
