Given the following set of numbers: 5,5,6,6,6,6,8,9,10,10,23 23 is an example of ________. A. The mean B. The standards deviation C. The range D. An outliner?

From a statistical point of view I would suggest it is an outlier. If the numbers are data points, then they are well bunched around the range of 5-10. It cannot be the mean, this is always smaller than your largest data value and larger than your smallest. The standard deviation is a measure of how closely or sparsely distributed your values are around the mean. Again, 23 doesn't fit that. The range is an interval, not a single number. I hope that helps clarify things :)
