Which measure of center is the only one that can be used with data at the nominal level of measurement? Mean Median Mode

Which of the following measures of center is not affected by outliers?
Mean Median Mode

Find the mode for the given sample data. 79, 25, 79, 13, 25, 29, 56, 79
48.1 42.5 25

Which is not true about the variance?
It is the square of the standard deviation. It is a measure of the spread of data. The units of the variance are different from the units of the original data. It is not affected by outliers.
