Statistics with NumPy Practice Exam Question 3

I think that the way that the question is worded and the correct answer are not appropriate.  The question states that the top 5 scores will represent the school in the math competition.  When looking at the array given there are 5 scores higher than the score given in the question, which would imply that the score is not high enough for the student to be a part of the math competition team.   The answer that was shown as correct is looking for the top 25 percent of scores which would qualify the student for the team.

Agree. The answer is wrong. The student doesn't qualify as he is 6th and the rules say that only 5 get in. If they had asked for 75% then the answer makes sense, but they didn't, so it doesn't.  Lucky it is only a practise exam.  I see you raised this point nearly a year ago and 365 have not edited it as of 13 January 2024 (11 months later)
